Muskegon had some unique industries….one being the Fitzjohn Coach Company.
I recall the plant in Muskegon. There were numerous bus/coach manufacturers during this era….as riding the bus was a major form (along with the railroads) of transportation.
Other than design….bus manufacturing was straight forward – body sheet metal….engines….frames….interior components were more than likely outsourced. The assembly was the major function.
Fitzjohn closed in 1958….yet left its legacy in Muskegon’s manufacturing history.
