Flambeau, Inc was founded in 1947, and is a manufacturer of all kinds of plastic products. Flambeau originally entered the yo-yo industry when they were contracted by Duncan to manufacture plastic yo-yos. Following the 1965 Yo-Yo Trademark Court Decision, Duncan fell into bankruptcy and was purchased by Flambeau Plastics in 1968. Since then, Duncan has been a division of this parent company. Flambeau Plastics is owned by the holding company The Nordic Group of Companies. In addition to manufacturing Duncan yo-yos, the company also produces fishing lures and tackle-boxes.
