Elmore Taxis in Washington  D. C.

From Founder to Sons

As production increased at the Clyde plant, more than 200 workers were employed, producing an average of four cars per day. On October 28, 1908, the Becker brothers incorporated the Elmore Manufacturing Company under the laws of Ohio. Nearly a year later, James and Burton Becker, who had earlier bought out their father's interest in the car business, sold the company to General Motors on November 25, 1909 for a reported $1,000,000. The deal called for Burton A. Becker to continue as the firm's general manager.
