Due   to   the   surge   in   demand   for   Jukeboxes   at   this   time   Tonomat   in   Germany   could   not   fulfil   the   demand   for   jukeboxes   that Ditchburn   required,   so   they   turned   to   the   other   British   Jukebox   Manufacturer   Bal-Ami   in   Essex   and   ordered   around   200 machines for various sites around the UK.

Due   to   post   war   restrictions   still   in   place   that   did   not   allow   the   importation   of   non   essential   items   from   the   USA   (   including Jukeboxes   )      Geoffrey   Norman   Ditchburn   had   discussions   with   Tonomat   in   Germany,   part   of   the   post   war   agreement   was   that trade   between   Germany   was   encouraged   to   allow   the   rebuilding   of   the   German   economy   and   infrastructure,   in   exchange   British industries   had   access   to   German   patents   and   inventions   to   use   in   our   own   industry,   and   manufacturing.   Tonomat   produced some   of   the   most   well   engineered   Jukeboxes   ever   made,   they   certainly   did   not   copy   the   design   of   the   USA   manufacturers   and were engineered by ex-telecommunications engineers, that used many telephone exchange components in their design.  
Due   By   1962   the   restrictions   on   importation   of   Jukeboxes   from   the   USA   had   been   lifted   Ditchburn   became   the   UK   official distributor   of   Wurlitzer   USA   Jukeboxes,   they   imported   8   machines   every   month   from   the   USA   which   continued   until   Ditchburn was was sold in 1972.

In   1960   the   "Deutsche   Wurlitzer   GmbH"   was   founded   in   Germany   as   a   subsidiary   of   the   US   Wurlitzer   and   in   1961   started   to manufacture   The   Lyric   Models.   From   1963   Ditchburn   decided   to   import   these   from   Germany   as   well   as   the   USA   models   to   fulfil the   demand   and   requirement   of   Jukeboxes   throughout   the   UK.   although   the   exact   listings   and   import   numbers   are   not   known, they   were   the   mainstay   of   demand   and   were   imported   in   larger   numbers   than   the   American   Wurlitzer   models.   at   least   8   per month of each machine,  approximately over 1000 machines were brought and distributed into the UK.

In   1972      Ditchburn   bought      a   Wurlitzer   Carousel   C100   cassette   Jukebox   it   had   a   Capacity   of   10   cassettes   and   was   to   be Distributed   in   UK   by   Ditchburn   as   "Cassettina"      This   was   not   as   successful   as   the   press   cutting   below   made   out   as   I   think   we had   one   of   the   C100   and   in   1973   we   bought   a   C110   these   were   evaluated   by   Ditchburn   /      Gainesmead   chief   engineer   Alan Black, and the reason they were not used was Gainesmead took over Ditchburn and Wurlitzer imports stopped in 1973.
From      1962   onwards      Ditchburn   also   brought   Seeburg   Jukeboxes   into   the   UK,   various   models   were   imported   from   the   USA although   exact   numbers   are   not   known,    Arthur   estimates   there   were   about   160   Seeburg   machines   imported .    Ditchburn also   imported   over   50   Seeburg   BMS   1000   machines,   these   were   Background   Music   Systems   that   were   operated   along   with   the Symphonette BGM systems providing music for shops and companies throughout the UK.

When   Ditchburn   Equipment   was   sold   in   1972      to   Gainesmead      2,832 Automatic   Phonographs    were   transferred   as assets      to   Gainesmead   limited.   But   I   do   not   think   there   was   any   Bal   Ami’s   left   in   service,   I   think   these   had   been removed from service by that time.                                                  Arthur Phillips ( Ditchburn Chief Audio Engineer )
