The Bain Wagon Company had its inception in 1840, the business having been established as a partnership affair by the firm of Mitchell & Quarles, under the name of the Mitchell Wagon Works. At that time every part of the wagon was made in the shop and all the work was done by band. This business was purchased by Edward Bain in 1852 and was continued under his name until 1882, when the business was incorporated under the laws of Wisconsin, with Edward Bain as president; George Yule, vice president; Charles Bain, treasurer; F. S. Newell, secretary; and George A. Yule, superintendent. When Mr. Bain passed away in December, 1898, he was succeeded in the presidency by George Yule, who. for thirty years had been superintendent of the plant before the incorporation of the business and is today the oldest man in years and in length of service in Wisconsin in active connection with industrial interests. It was also in 1898 that George A. Yule became superintendent. The treasurer, Charles Bain, died in March, 1894, at which time F. S. Newell was chosen to the office. His death occurred in November, 1901, and he was succeeded by Frank Slosson, who became secretary and treasurer. Mr. Slosson died in 1911 and the Yules then purchased the Bain and Newell interests in the business. The officers were then: George Yule, president; G. A. Yule, secretary and treasurer. No other change occurred until the death of William, L. Yule on March 15, 1914, when he was succeeded by William H. Yule as director and vice president. The plant now covers about four blocks and consists of twelve different buildings from one to four stories in height. These are of modern mill construction and this is the only wagon company in the United States which is insured with the New England Mutual Insurance Company. They use the sprinkler system throughout and the plant is otherwise most thoroughly equipped. A large warehouse is now in the process of construction. The plant has a capacity of 18,000 wagons annually and about 450 men are employed, most of them, skilled laborers. The RTS Catering, Rollin' Texas style Chuck Wagon was built by the Bain Freight Company around 1893. It is fully functional and drivable. The chuck box is made of 100 year plus Bois D' Arc tree wood.
 
  • At the above right is an illustration of a Bane Wagon as it would look during the early days of manufacturing by the Bane Wagon Company of Kenosha, Kenosha County Wisconsin. The pin striping depicted was common during that time period, however after competition grew this ornate decoration fell by the wayside in order to be remain price competitive.
