History

 

Emenee Industries was founded in 1949 and produced mainly organs and musical toys for children. Between 1955 and 1968, Emenee was located in Flushing, New York where it became a leading manufacturer of plastic toys while continuing to produce musical instruments.

 

In May of 1968, the Ohio Art Company, a toy company from Bryan, Ohio, purchased 51 percent of Emenee’s stock and the company’s production was moved to Stryker. Emenee’s administrative offices were then located at Ohio Art.

 

Emenee only existed a short time as a subsidiary of the Ohio Art Company.  On April 25, 1973, the shareholders of Ohio Art and Emenee approved a merger with the two companies. From then on, Emenee ceased to exist as a separate entity.

 

They had at least one crayon product; a crayon making machine that contained colored wax that could be melted into crayons and put into a wrapper.   The box technically contained no specific number of crayons but has the source material to make many.
