The Garford Manufacturing Company of Elyria, Ohio was initially founded by Arthur Lovett Garford in 1892 making the "Garford Saddle" (the first paced bicycle seat) which sold over 1 million in just the first few years.

He then formed the Automobile and Cycle Parts Company in 1893 but later changed the name to Federal Manufacturing Company. He then resigned and formed The Garford Company and formed an alliance with Studebaker.
