Metz Manufacturing Company Incorporated

The Horseless Age
September 1, 1909
Page#249

The Metz Manufacturing Company has been incorporated under Massachusetts laws at Waltham, Mass., to take over the business of the C.H. Metz Company, which nearly a year ago bought out the Waltham Manufacturing Company. The new company is capitalized at $500,000. The directors are John C. Robbins, president; Charles Spiegelberg, treasurer, and Charles H. Wolfe. Mr. Metz is the majority stock-holder. The company will continue to manufacture assembled parts for the runabout, which are sold under what is known as the Metz plan, the purchasers doing the final assembling themselves. It is said that nearly 200 men are at present at work in the company’s plant. There has been some talk of removing the business to some other city, but the Waltham Business Men’s Association has taken the matter up, and will make endeavors to hold the company.

1916 Metz Automobile in Europe video

We found this video on the internet of a Metz owner in Europe taking a ride in his Metz Automobile. We believe the gentleman is speaking German. If you can tell us anything about what is being said please tell us in the comment section.

In ganz Europa gibt es ihn nur einmal: Der Metz Waltham gehört zu den ältesten Autos der Welt. 1916 wurde er in Amerika gebaut, fuhr in Pennsylvania und stand dann 40 Jahre im Museum. Dort hatte Kurt Brücher aus Wilnsdorf den Oldi entdeckt, sofort gekauft und wieder fahrtüchtig gemacht.
