This company started car production in 1917 in Decatur, Illinois. The Comet was an assembled car with a six-cylinder engine. Cars were only produced when a firm dealership order was on hand.

Their slogan was "This Comet has come to stay". In five years only 1,094 cars were made. But in 1920-1921 they sold 40 cars to Belgique Europe and dreamed of international success. In vain. In 1921 they had to close down.
