That sounds about right. Taiwan was one of the largest producers of small screen TV sets, so Philips built a picture tube factory to supply their own and other local setmakers. I think their Spanish and one of their Dutch factories also made some small B/W tubes at least until the early 1980's. All production was shifted to Taiwan at some point in time. It was cost effective to send small tubes around the world in bulk packaging.
