Charlie, I’d hunted the company a while ago to trace a metal square I have..
Found this from a 1999 posting..

“The firm was Jan Nooitgedagt of Ylst, Friesland, Holland. A
prolific and long operating maker:c1650 to present (present was 1976).

My understanding is that a few years ago, Nooitgedagt was
purchased by Record (UK). Last year about this time Record was
purchased by American Tool Company (Vise Grips and more). I
suppose this makes Nooitgedagt an American company.

I have also heard the name translates to “Never thought of” or
something like that. “

(Seems to me somewhere in the mix was also Rubbermaid ? Multinational takeovers eh !)
