Toshiba

Toshiba manufactured electronic desktop and hand-held calculators from the late-1960s to the mid-1970s.  Calculators are usually labelled Tokyo Shibaura Electric Co., or later Toshiba Corporation.

Toshiba Business Machine Co. Ltd. was a company within the Toshiba group, and marketed a range of calculators under the 'Homeland' brand.  These appear to have been sourced from OEM companies.
