Moves From Ann Arbor
The Ann Arbor Marine Engine Company reorganized as the Wayne Motor Company, will move to Detroit.
The company was capitalized April 1 at $30,000. The move to Detroit is made to secure the advantages of greater conveniences in securing engine castings and in disposing of the finished machines. At present motors of eight horsepower or less are being manufactured for the marine trade. The company expects to increase its output about 50 times after moving to Detroit and to begin the manufacture of stationary engines for farm use.
Charles Gross of Detroit is the president of the company, and W. H. Woods of Ann Arbor is vice-president. Other local men are also interested. A. J. Collins of Cincinnati is factory manager, while Andrew Hunter of Ann Arbor, who designed the engine, will be head of the engine department.
Mr. Hunterís engine has been declared by university engineering department tests to be the most powerful engine of its kind that has ever been tested in the local laboratories. The company will locate in the new Dodge building in Detroit.
The Michigan Manufacturer, Vol. 6, No. 25, April 22, 1911. P. 9.
Scott Peters (good luck with this one, Richard!)
