MBC Metal Box & Cabinet Company still in business?
« on: January 17, 2012, 03:27:18 PM »
I've tried to find out what happened to MBC without much luck, talked to some old timers that new where they were located years ago but that's about it and I couldn't find out anything else about them. Today I happened to look at the name plate on my MBC side box and notice that it said MBCentury, Metal Box Corporation, Franklin Park, ILL, never noticed that before. Anyhow I did a search and there is a Metal Box International in Franklin Park that makes metal furniture and is associated with Edsal (which I though because some of the older MAC or Snap-On boxes look like Edsal's). Interesting, very interesting.
