    I found three different examples of Alemite grease cans, and one local manufacturer, who's been in the business since the 1930s.Troco ois, that's now been renamed Royal manufacturing has found a way to stay in business without being gobbled up by one of the larger companies. At one time, before WW2, they were actually using a swastika logo where you see the black box inside the white circle. That was probably the worst mistake they've made, because here comes World War II and Uganda will company with a swastika logo! They quickly change to this logo and it seems to work.
