A brief company history: The Red Lion Table Company was founded in 1917 by the Craley and Sechrist families and expanded greatly in the 1920’s when Hames B. Sechrist purchased an early radio and was displeased by the appearance of its wires and hardware and took to building a suitable cabinet for his latest audio technology. After a pitch to the Atwater Kent Radio Company of Philadelphia, Red Lion began creating radio cabinets for them. Shortly there after, already being acquainted with the family of the Philadelphia Battery Storage Company (Later Philco) the two firmed a partnership and exclusively made radio cabinets for them. Later during World War I the factories focused on creating everything from hospital tent components and Walkie-Talkie boxes to airplane and glider frames and experimental aircraft for companies such as Martin (later Lockheed Martin) even creating bomb fuses. Later they produced the Redco Profile Grinder to perform upkeep on their own woodworking tools which were later produced and sold to other Furniture manufacturers. Later in the Fifties Redco retained a plethora of Defense contracts producing everything from gunsights, bomb hoists, rocket and missile parts as well as munitions. The company was sold and separated over the years and currently under the umbrella of Elkay Manufacturing.
