Burle Industries is the former industrial tube division of RCA, still headquartered in Deptford, NJ. They were part of the RCA family when RCA owned the broadcast network NBC and remained with them when GE made the big buy out of RCA. However, when Thomson CSF of Europe bought all of RCA and the rights to the GE name for consumer electronics, NBC remained with GE. With the exception of the Industrial Tube Division both RCA and GE tubes had already been buried. RCA's Industrial Tube division was bought by some of the executives and shareholders, renamed Burle Industries and remains active today, producing special purpose and transmitting tubes. Thomson didn't need them as they are a force in the same product under their new name of Thales.
