About Wyler Industrial Works, Inc.
Wyler Industrial Works Inc.’s history can be traced back to the 1880s when Oliver Dutton, a machinist who owned a bicycle shop, set up his storefront in the Sun City because of his interests in the railroad expansions, which was a big change in El Paso around that time. Dutton eventually turned his bicycle shop into a spare parts business, targeting the railroad companies, who may have needed to purchase parts while traveling through El Paso. For a short while, this business was known as the Electric and Machine Company before being renamed to the El Paso Novelty Company in 1900. The company resided at the corner of San Antonio and East Overland, where it remained for many years.
But Dutton didn’t stop his business there. In 1906, he teamed up with J.C. House and T.C. Link to create a new company called Union Iron and Brass Works, moving the company to the corner of South Virginia and Sixth Street in 1907. From there, the company continued to grow and a few years after that, in 1911, John O. Wyler and J.F. Baumgarten joined the company, eventually gaining control and renaming the company Baumgarten and Wyler in 1913. At the time, the company specialized in manufacturing brass products and making general repairs. In 1923, the company was renamed Wyler Industrial Works after Wyler purchased Baumgarten’s shares and partnered up with Otto J. Wyler and Harvey Wilson.
