Taylor and his brother where it was known as the Gananoque Carriage Co. They were the first company in Canada to issue an illustrated catalogue and to furnish the wholesale trade.In 1891, being constrained by capacity and space problems,, it was decided to move the business to Brockville At first in Brockville, they used the name Brockville Carriage Co., but soon incorporation of the new Canada Carriage Co. was granted on March 28, 1892. By 1895 this plant was possibly the largest of its kind in the Dominion of Canada. The company manufactured carriages, surreys, traps, phaetons, wagons and sleighs. These were shipped throughout Canada and the United States, as well as foreign countries. About 300 to 400 men worked in the factory, and the payroll amounted to $3,500 each week. At the beginning of the automobile age in 1911 the Canada Carriage Co. had acquired the Canadian rights to build the Everitt an American car. About 80 Brockville 30 autos were assembled in Brockville that year. A new car was designed for 1912, the Brockville Atlas, model A, priced at $2,000. Bodies and chassis were built by the Canada Carriage Co. Between 1912 and 1915 the Atlas Automobile Co. in Brockville produced models C, D, E, F and G. By 1915, about 300 cars had been built. 1915 was the last year for the Brockville Atlas, as the pressures of World War I created material shortages and lagging sales, and production was suspended. You can read more on the company by visiting Brockville History Album, a production of Doug Grant. My thanks to Mr. Grant for info above.
