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.
Corporate Website for Sylvania Corporation: www.sylvania.com
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.
