Lemeco was a Swedish board game publisher and toy manufacturer and importer. The company was founded in 1948 in Hägersten, nr. Stockholm, by a Mr Rune Heurlen. Initially they decided to call themselves Mekanolek, but that was changed to Lemeco due to complaints from toy giant Meccano.
Lemeco is probably best remembered for their toy cars, plastics as well as metal, and dolls and dolls accessories. Another important line was the model motors and steam engines (incl. steam accessories). (Some of them might, according to one source, have been sold under the name of Selka.)
Similar to competitor Alga, Lemeco would relocate in the 1960's from the crowded city of Stockholm. They ended up in Örbyhus, a small village between Uppsala and Gävle. Lemeco also became a plastic manufacturer even producing items of non-toy & game character. (In Örbyhus Lemeco is still remembered as "Plastfabriken" ("The Plastics factory").)
In the early 1980's Lemeco went into liquidation due to bankruptcy. In 1998 the old factory buildings in Örbyhus was demolished.
Today toys from Lemeco has become collectibles and there is a few internet sites with pictures and information.
