Here is some info on Erd for your files--enjoy!:


Erd Motor Company, Ltd., The

The Erd Motor Company, Ltd. was a marine engine manufacturer located at 1357-1363 N. Niagara, Saginaw, Saginaw County, Michigan. The company emerged out of the former Erd Machine Company. By 1906 the company was in the process of increasing the size of its plant and was installing new machine tools. An article in Motor Boat in December 1905 stated that the company would be building motors ranging in size from 1 to 20 horsepower, using jigs and templates to assure the interchangeability of parts. At the same time, the company also planned to bring out a 16-foot launch equipped with a 1- ½ h.p. motor, selling for $125 and with an estimated speed of 8 miles per hour. The motor weighed 65 lbs and sold separately for $50.00.

The firm was incorporated in March 1909 with a capital of $25,000.

Officers of the firm in 1910 included J. G. Erd as president and general manager; R. H. Knapp, vice-president; and Harry S. Erd, secretary and treasurer.

The company reportedly built lightweight racing engines in 1912.
