Construction & Industrial Deal Toys

Beginning with the galleries on this page, you’ll find here images of over 200 deal toys and financial tombstones from the construction and industrial sectors. They commemorate transactions in a broad sweep of industries, including steel, coal, aluminum, cement and concrete, as well as heavy-duty vehicles and equipment.

As you might expect, the deal toy designs touch on a number of trappings commonly associated with these sectors. These design motifs play off, for instance, forklifts, bulldozers, excavators, steel rolls, claw cranes, power tools, plastic pails and buckets, trowels, hardhats, drywall, and paint brushes—to name just a few.

As you might also expect, the deals celebrated here involve many of the world’s most recognizable players and brands. These include, for instance, Cemex, Posco, Lennar, Tata Steel, thyssenkrupp, Doosan, Peab, U.S. Steel, Titan Cement, Alcoa, Voith, and Oerlikon.

But you’ll also find commemorated here tombstones recognizing deals and companies that are most likely less familiar. They include notes issued by a London-based tool rental company; construction financing for a Danish student housing project; the acquisition of a Chicago-based designer and manufacturer of sustainable food and beverage packaging; the acquisition of German provider of aerated concrete; and the acquisition of a Swedish supplier of temporary buildings.

In addition, you’ll also find commemoratives marking events and achievements in these sectors that are not related to a specific financial transaction. These include groundbreaking mementos celebrating the opening of facilities ranging from solar farms, to resorts, to municipal projects; another recognizing infrastructure projects in Sub-Saharan Africa, and another celebrating a joint-venture construction project centering on a co-branded hotel in Seattle; and a design commemorating successful litigation involving carbon steel pipes.
