History / Biographical
The Canadian Iron and Foundry Co. purchased the St. Thomas Car Wheel Co. in 1903 and built a new factory to produce railway car wheels. Later known as Canron, it became the main supplier of car wheels, brake shoes and other products to the St. Thomas rail industry, and contributed to its great success from the 19th century up to the period following the Second World War. By 1973 Canron, was the only manufacturer of railway brake shoes in Canada. Canron closed in the 1980s and the factory was demolished.
