Buddy L History:

Buddy L was founded by Fred A. Lundahl when he wanted to make toys that were new, different, and durable.  Buddy L produced cranes, steamrollers, trucks, trains and construction toys. Buddy L toys were named after the founder`s son Arthur. Lundahl introduced the line in 1921, starting with a pressed steel pick-up truck that expanded into a veritable fleet of almost 30 cranes and other construction toys some five years later. Throughout the years the company that manufactured Buddy L had many names beginning with Moline Pressed Steel until Mr. Lundahl sold the company during the depression.  After that the company switched hands a few times before being sold off in 1995 by SLM International under bankruptcy protection. By 2010, Buddy L it was owned by Empire Industries of Boca Raton, Florida, a subsidiary of Empire of Carolina where it has become more of a name than a toy maker.
