History

 

J & L Randall Ltd was founded in the early 1940s as a maker of small pieces of military electrical equipment.  After the war they were a toy manufacturer.  They were based in Potters Bar in Middlesex until 1965 and then they moved to Hertfordshire.  They mainly focused on stationery steam engines and scientific toys but their Merit brand name was used for other products, one of which was crayons.  They were bought by Letraset in 1978.
