As the 1925 ad states, the company started out making high quality carriages in 1810. As automobiles grew in popularity, they imported high quality makes from France and England, making bodies for cars for the American market. As that fad passed they struggled financially and in 1925 were bought by Rolls Royce America as their body manufacturer. This also did not last and the company went bankrupt in 1935 despite building over 100 cars under their own name, built on a Ford chassis.
An aeronautical division kept going, coming out with several models of aircraft, including the Brewster Buffalo.
