Everybody knows that Streebor is Roberts spelled backwards. Well, almost. Why is that extra "e" in there?

Strebor Diecasting (the name comes from Roberts spelled backwards) was a die-casting company in Radcliffe, Lancashire who achieved widespread notice as makers of cylinder locks and locking devices for the motor trade during the 1960's and 1970's under the STREBOR and STRONIC trade names. Their locks were to be found on British cars such as the Mini. The company was founded around 1j930, and finally dissolved in 2003-04 followind a period of rundown and some industrial problems.

Yes, streebor is roberts spelled backwards. I put the estra "e" in there to make it look and sound a little cooler. I didn't want you think think it was stebber. Anyway thanks to mom for the history of the rise and fall of the great die-casting company with which we are not associated.
