of the original TI-1895 II introduced in 1986 moved
eventually from Taiwan to Thailand.
Dismantling this TI-1895 II manufactured in 1994 reveals a typical design of a far east contract manufacturer. The printed circuit board (PCB) itself doesn't carry any hint to the company behind the product but we identify Compal Electronics from the date code.
If you are interested in really powerful metric conversion calculators you should go for either a Canon FC-80 or the TI-1890.
