InspectAPedia tolerates no conflicts of interest. We have no relationship with advertisers, products, or services discussed at this website.
Here we provide contact information for Zinsco and Zinsco Sylvania electrical panels. This website discusses the electrical, fire, and shock hazards associated with Zinsco electrical components,
circuit breakers, electrical panels, including certain Sylvania electrical panels and breakers which are in fact of the same product design and origin.
Contact Information for Zinsco or Sylvania-Zinsco Electrical Company
Zinsco Electric is not a going concern and it is unlikely that readers will find direct contact information for "the Zinsco Corporation".
Current Owner of the ZInsco and.or Sylvania Circuit Panel Product Line:
Susan Wright, legal specialist for Osram Sylvania, kindly informed us (March 2011) that the Zinsco/Sylvania product line was sold to Verizon in 1984. GTE purchased Zinsco Circuit Breaker in the seventy’s and then sold the business in 1983 to another 3rd party. In 2000 Verizon purchased GTE who at that time was called GTE Sylvania.

Previous Owners of Zinsco/Sylvania Product Line
As Zinsco products were later marketed through the Osram Sylvania Electric Corporation, and GTE-Sylvania and because we've had occasional requests
from prior employees of Zinsco Corporation or their families for assistance in contacting their prior employer or for employment
records, we provide, below, contact information for the Sylvania Corporation.
Readers should be aware that information and photographs describing failures of GTE-Sylvania-Zinsco equipment pertain only to that product line and not to other GTE or Sylvania products.

Zinsco or Sylvania Employment Records, Pensions, or other employment records: most companies keep employee records indefinitely. Even if you or a family member worked for Zinsco Corp. before that product line was picked up by Sylvania,
Sylvania Corporation may have received and kept those employment records. You should contact Sylvania with any such requests for employment information.
