Farrell Products Company (Dowagiac, Mich.)



The Farrell Products company plant in Dowagiac was organized by Archie W. Farrell in November of 1923. The company was based at the offices of White’s Garage in the city of Dowagiac. The company manufactured machinery for the making and construction of washing machines. In 1925, the company transferred 51% of their stock holding to Thos J. Casey to secure additional capital. The Farrell Products Plant closed on August 17, 1926. Officials said it was due to the plant being to far from the sales headquarters in Chicago. The closure instigated a court fight between local shareholders and the Chicago headquarters over disposal of the remaining products.
