Pressed Metal Company, Providence, Rhode Island; Sales Office; Factory, Pawtucket, 1929 - 1933.

Founders: Victor C. Wetzel and Charles I. Bigney.

Specialized in: child-sized, pressed-steel trucks, closely akin to Buddy "L" and Keystone, but generic rather than replicating real life truck models.

Sturditoys trucks featured solid disc wheels, hard rubber "Firestone" tires and heavy steel bumpers. Sturditoys were advertised as "True Lines of Modern Motor Fire Apparatus and Modern Business Trucks" which duplicated real trucks found on the highways of America in 1926.
