North Central Ohio Biographies





The Troxel Manufacturing Company. One of the pioneer business establishments of Lorain County, widely known throughout the United States, is the Troxel Manufacturing Company, of Elyria. It was founded in 1899 by the late D. S. Troxel, and had a capital stock of $50,000. Reorganization took place on Feb. 1, 1917, and at that time the stock was increased to $1,000,000. During that year the company also occupied its new plant and office building.

It is estimated that 80% of bicycle saddles sold throughout the United States are manufactured by this well known concern. They also are specialists in fine leather goods, and have manufactured a highly successful line of golf bags and handbags. Products of the Troxel Manufacturing Company have a wide distribution throughout the country. Approximately 200 people are employed in the offices and manufacturing plant of the company in Elyria.
