Louis J. Bergdoll immigrated to Philadelphia from Germany and created a brewery which made him a rich man.
In 1910 he decided to build his own automobile manufacturing it using the best components available like a Westinghouse motor and Warner Gear Transmission.

He offered the four-cylinder Models 30 and 40 guaranteeing 50 and 60 mph, respectively. In 1913 the factory went into receivership and car production was ceased.

The cars used a different emblem for the 30 and 40 hp cars, as was the custom at that time.
