Structo Toys

Founders: Louis and Edward Strohacker and C.C. Thompson

Location: Freeport, Illinois

Circa: 1908 to 1975

Structo produced a wide range of pressed steel toy trucks and ride on vehicles.

Structo of Freeport, Ill. was founded in 1908 by brothers Louis & Edward Strohacker and C.C. Thompson. By 1915, Structo had entered the toy making with the production of its structural model building sets, of which designs were sold to British toy maker, Meccano in 1918. These builder sets were eventually marketed in the United States as Erector Sets by A.C. Gilbert, now a household name. By late 1918 and early 1919, Structo had all but abandoned the production of these building sets and had launched a new and revolutionary line of Auto Builder Outfits, which included a limited but very impressive selection of automobiles, trucks and tractors. By late 1920 and into 1921, these models and a few new ones were also being offered in a factory assembled Ready Built line. For for the next 55 years, Structo continued to be innovators in the toy making industry, changing cast cab designs several times during the decade of the 1950s. For the most part, painted truck cabs and rubber wheels were the hallmark of the first Series # 600 & # 700 trucks issued between 1951 and 1954. In 1955, the cabs were upgraded with a Chrome finish including new running lights and cast metal Mag style wheels w/ rubber tires. In 1958, Structo produced the first cast cab / steel frame (not aluminum) tractor trailer designs.
