Biography of Otis W. Mott
Oneida County, NY Biographies





Otis Webster Mott, originator and head of The Mott Wheel Works of Utica, was born in this city, August 6, 1871, and is a son of Edward Earle and Ella Clark (Webster) Mott. On the 1st of July, 1907, he organized The Mott Wheel Works for the manufacture of automobile rims, axles and wire wheels of every description. The firm bought the plant and wire wheel business of the Weston Mott Company which moved to Flint, Michigan, and from January 1, 1908, its business has steadily increased. Recently a part of the plant of the Standard Harrow Company was acquired and plans are being made to remodel and improve the works on a large scale. The company makes wheels for aeroplanes and jinrikishs wheels for use in the Orient, in addition to many other styles of wheels demanded on account of modern inventions. Employment is now given to one hundred and fifty persons, but it is proposed when the improvements are completed to increase the number of employes to two hundred and fifty. The success of the enterprise is due to progressive methods and the desire of the management to fully satisfy the demands of patrons by the prompt aelivery of the very highest grade of products at reasonable prices. Judged by the rapid advance it has made during the last three years The Mott Wheel Works promises at an early date to become one of t.he largest manufacturing concerns of Utica. Its officers are: O. W. Mott, president and general manager, Henry B. Williams, vice president, and Clarence B. Williams, secretary and treasurer.
