TVLC = Thames Valley Lift Control.
Not sure, but I believe they're out of business,... or possibly gobbled up by Thyssen?

Correction.... Thames Valley is NOT out of buisiness,... they did sell out in the U.S., but are still operating in the U.K.

In the early 1990's when I worked for Millar Elev., they were installing some of this equipment. Thames would suggest England,which they probabally were, but the equipment was made or assembled in Canada. The manufacturer proudly displayed stickers in every controller cabinet with the Canadian flag and initialed by the wirer or assembler.
