11 The Elm Tree Tool and Die Company
11. The Elm Tool and Die Company
Newsletter Seven mentioned American Louis Marx’s Hong Kong “The Elm Tool and Die Company”, established in 1952 and managed by a David Yea. (However, another source suggests this company was registered on 15th November 1958 and dissolved on 2nd March 1991.) It appears this was a toy company as Mr. Yea was destined to become owner and CEO of Universal Matchbox Toys. Further investigation into Marx’s involvement in Hong Kong, the Company or David Yea’s connection to it has provided nothing further. Can anyone take us forward?
