Oliver Farm Equipment Company Advertising Collectibles!
James Oliver received a patent that covered the important features of the
chilled iron plow and in the following year, he was granted another patent that covered his unique chilling process. The small Oliver factory was incorporated and renamed as the
South Bend Iron Works.
The South Bend Iron Works built a new foundry, warehouse and a machine shop. The factory, in addition to making plows, made parts for the Singer Sewing Machine Company and the Studebaker Manufacturing Company. In 1871 the factory sold 1,500 plows, three years later the company made and sold 17,000 plows. By 1874, Oliver's chilled plow orders had grown so much that he devoted full time to making the now very popular plow.
In 1901 the South Bend Iron Works was incorporated and the name was changed to the
Oliver Chilled Plow Works. In 1908 James Oliver died and his son, Joseph Doty Oliver replaced him as president. In 1920s the Oliver company started to experiment with a tractor of their own. The first tractor they produced was called the
Oliver Chilled Plow Tractor.
