Salvador parachutes and their manufacturer

Post by parahist » 11 Dec 2020 20:26

Before the WW2 and war time there was few different Salvador parachute types, like Salvador B, D 39, D 40 and IF 41/SP. What was the name of the company and where it was located? Was there only one place to produce those parachutes or was there few places?
