In 1904, an engineering student named Clarence Spicer left Cornell University to launch a new business in the vacant corner of a New Jersey factory.
While still a student, Spicer had earned a patent for his groundbreaking design of the first practical universal joint to power an automobile. Spicer’s innovation would quite literally unchain the automobile, which had previously relied on chain-and-sprocket drives to transmit power. But at its outset, his new venture was a decidedly bold step.
A talented engineer and inventor, Spicer had neither business nor manufacturing experience. And although the automobile was destined to become a global institution, its future was still far from certain at the turn of the 20th century.
It was from these uncertain beginnings that Dana Incorporated emerged as one of the world’s most influential automotive suppliers. Founded on Spicer’s designs, and fueled by the business acumen of attorney, politician, and financier Charles Dana, the company proceeded to expand its product array, technological expertise, and geographic scope throughout the century. Along the way, Dana Incorporated also fostered a progressive, people-oriented culture that has added a unique dimension to the products and services the company provides.
Building on these strengths, Dana Incorporated products have helped to drive history’s greatest vehicles – from the Model T and the World War II-era Jeep®, to London taxicabs, 18-wheel rigs, giant earth-moving machines, and every car on the NASCAR® racing circuit.
As Dana Incorporated embarks on its second century, it continues to build on this proud heritage. Dana people continue their passionate pursuit of innovation. And the company continues to deliver on its commitment to advancing the science of mobility for the benefit of its global customers.
The Fort Wayne facility makes axle and axle components for the light truck market.
Stark Family Farm: 9841 N 750 E, Ossian, IN 46777
Thursday June 8th beginning at 5:30
Ryan Stark has offered the FWEC another check in on the progress of the kit plane that his father began building. This tour is a follow up to our June 2015 tour.
The plane is an RV-12; a two-seat, low wing all aluminum aircraft made by Van’s Aircraft Company. This aircraft kit can be purchased in parts and the Stark plane is on the third part. The first was the tail and empennage, and second kit was for the wings, and the third is for the fuselage.
Pizza, chips, beer, and pop will be provided and there will also be a bonfire going in case it gets cold.
Directions from Fort Wayne: Take Winchester Road to the town of Poe. In Poe, turn Right on Poe Road (the last road before you leave town) and head south into Wells County. In Wells County, once you pass 1000 N, look for a large blue house on the East side of the road; it’s the farm with a Minion painted on the silo.
