I believe this is the way the corporate history worked:

1921 - 1962		Franke & Heidecke
1962 - 1981		Rollei-Werke Franke & Heidecke
1970			Rollei Singapore (Pte) Ltd founded
1971			Rollei of America and Rollei of Canada founded 
1972			Rollei France SA and Rollei UK Ltd founded
1973			Rollei Schweiz AG and Rollei Austria Gmbh founded
1975			Rollei Nederland BV and Rollei Japan Co Ltd founded
1980			Singapore plant closed and Rollei Singapore (Pte) Ltd dissolved
1981			Rollei-Werke Franke & Heidecke in receivership and bought 
			out by United Scientific Holdings Ltd
1982			Company renamed Rollei Fototechnic

So, from 1970 to 1980, I would guess that the Rollei Group included the
mother company of Rollei-Werke Franke & Heidecke and its national daughter
