Charles Kempster and William Lowe founded Kemlows Diecasting Products Ltd. In 1946 with the intention to produce a range of diecast miniature toys from premises in London.

However, the toy manufacturing side of the business was short lived and the company quickly moved from its original customer base into engineered components and the automotive sector. Kemlows continues today as a manufacturer of larger casting projects, covering all industries and casting users.

Thus the early Kemlows toys are very collectable and their caravan is considered quite rare.

Further Kemlow background can be found in the 2009 publication by Paul Brooks – The illustrated Kemlows story.
