Lloyds

Lloyd's Electronics, Inc., Compton, California, U.S.A.

A subsidiary of Rockwell[1], Lloyd's, also known for its stereo equipment, introduced a wide range of models of electronic hand-held calculators in the early to mid- 1970s, including the Lloyd's Accumatic 100 which was probably the first calculator with an LCD display.
In Europe calculators identical to Lloyd's models are found with the name Lloytron.
