Tell us about your business.Roylco is a developer, manufacturer and exporter of innovative hands-on educational, specialty toy and crafts products for classrooms and homes around the world. Our products are for all ages! We adhere strictly to our policy of making only original ideas. We purchase raw materials from local suppliers and complete the products domestically in our factory. We have been manufacturing since 1969 when we started with basic classroom staples. Over time, as things evolved in the classroom, things changed at Roylco. We grew by focusing on art materials for younger children. We printed paper in fun designs and cut out sponges for dip and print painting. One innovative product led to more possibilities. As we continued to grow, so did our manufacturing capabilities – new machines, better production methods, good old-fashioned North American innovation! Now we develop science, mathematics, language and sensory products that are engaging and fun for young children.
What makes your business stand out?We are constantly developing and finding new ways to make original products that inspire creativity at affordable prices. Our product collection is vast and manufactured by us from start to finish, including the retail packaging. We have fast turn-around from conception to finished product.
What's the best business advice you've received?The best advice we have received is to hire people that are more talented and creative than we are.
