Metalcraft Corp., St Louis, Missouri, 1920 - 1938. Metalcraft produced playground equipment (such as teeter-totters) and pressed-steel trucks and acquired the rights for producing the pressed-steel airplane of Lindburgh's "Spirit of St. Louis". The company made millions of toy truck premiums known as "Business Leaders".
George R. Ericson was the owner of the Metalcraft Corporation during the Great Depression and this company, like so many others in the world at that time, did not make it through the depression, shutting its doors for the last time in 1938.
