Based in Deerfield, Illinios, this company has distributed their "Speed Wheels" series for Walgreens Pharmacies since the 1980s. By the mid 2000s, they were up to their 'Series XI' editions. Universal made castings were used at first. And then Welly castings. More recently castings from Maisto were used. In the mid 1990s, offerings were packaged in clear plastic bags.

In the mid 2000s, a Maisto "Transport Hauler" semi big rig with trailers were being distributed along with Motor Max launcher type castings.
