Akron Works originally belonged to the Aultman & Miller Buckeye Company until it was bought out by IHC in 1905. Retooled and modernized in 1907, the works burned down and was rebuilt in 1912. Occupying 11.5 land acres, the works closed in 1919 when truck manufacturing was moved to Springfield Works. Akron Works manufactured harvesters (Buckeyes, until 1906 or so), auto wagons, commercial cars, motor truck parts, and tractors (until 1911).
