MRC, A HOBBY LEADER FOR 70 YEARS IS ACQUIRED BY VSA, INC

Allen Dayton, owner of VSA, Inc. and Roy C. Gelber, owner of Model Rectifier Corporation (MRC), have announced VSA’s acquisition of MRC.

A hobby leader for 70 years, MRC will operate as a division of VSA.  MRC’s headquarters will remain in NJ and the core management team will continue in place, including Akiko Kimura, as president and Donald Boyce as executive vice president.

MRC will continue to serve the hobby industry with its category-leading hobby lineup. This includes MRC-Prodigy DCC systems, sound decoders and accessories, as well as DC and AC train controls.

Among the company’s front-running plastic model brands are Academy Model Kits featuring armor, aircraft, warships and ships. Academy also delivers daVinci, fully-functional edu-tainment kits.

Italeri Plastic Models is another MRC brand highlighting military armor, aircraft, trucks and sports car kits. Finally, Easy Model’s factory-assembled, hand painted, armor, ships, planes, tanks and figures offer modelers a ready-to-display choice.

JTT’s Scenery Products featuring trees, flowering plants, vegetables and other landscaping items are in demand by railroaders, and craft enthusiasts. The company’s Garden Craft series, a collection of miniature home décor products, round out the MRC brand roster.
