Trenton Makes the World Takes

by Danielle Connelly on 16. Jun, 2017 in Aviation

The proud saying “Trenton Makes the World Takes”, coined in 1911, summarized Trenton’s manufacturing virtues in a phrase. At the time, and through the 1960s, Trenton was an industrial powerhouse, famous for iron, steel, rubber and pottery. The unique position between New York and Philadelphia allowed for easy transport of finished goods, Trenton was home to Trenton Iron Co., John A. Roebling’s Sons Co., and Trenton Rubber Co.; delivering iron materials for the Capitol Building and Treasury Building, and wire rope for the Brooklyn Bridge, George Washington Bridge, and Golden Gate Bridge. Tire production soared during World War I, leading Trenton to become known as the nation’s tire capital for a short while. This manufacturing heyday led rise to new companies opening in Trenton and attracted European immigrant workers, all which continued to expand the industrial hub.
