Dodge

Two brothers, John and Horace Dodge, would create one of the largest automobile industries in the world. Originally bicycle makers, the Dodge brothers opened a machine shop in Detroit in 1901 that manufactured stove parts, and later, auto parts. In 1910 the brothers established the Dodge Brothers Company that manufactured engines and auto parts for the Ford Motor Company and Olds Motor Works. Later in 1913, they began producing their own automobiles and invented one of the first all-steel cars in America. When both brothers died in 1920, Dodge was one of the industry's largest manufacturers. In 1928, Dodge was purchased by the Chrysler Corporation, where it remains a division under Chrysler today.
