Yard O Led

The Yard-O-Led Pencil Company was founded in  1934 by a Mr Brenner to produce his unique patent for propelling pencils which contained twelve three inch leads (that is to say, 36 inches or a yard of lead).  After the war the pencils had riveted clips and silver and gold pencils  were  fully  hallmarked.  In 1955  Yard o Led bought Edward Baker and the first YoL ballpoints were made in the Baker workshops and hallmarked EB.  Repairs were carried out in an old building in Soho Hill

Today pens and pencils are only made in Silver at their workshop in Spencer Street, Birmingham.  The new firm that owns YOL is Imperial Yard headed by Robin Field, who was previously CEO at Filofax

Thanks to Colin Brenner Keates (Mr Brenner's Grandson) for additional information
