Organizational Overview: The Farm Equipment Company started just after the first World War employing new technology to produce diesel engine parts for tractors. During the second World War, the firm switched to producing tank and truck parts. At the end of the war, the firm converted its equipment to the production of automotive parts for the expanding automobile industry. It was at that time, the firm changed their name to Automotive Builders Inc, the name it currently has today, although they remained a supplier to the farm equipment market.
