Company History: The Berwick plant of ACF (American Car & Foundry) was dated back to 1840 one of their largest. Unfortunately, by the early 1960’s the economy was slowing and in November of 1961 AC&F decided to close the doors of the Berwick plant. That same year the Berwick plant was sold to a group of local business people who established the Berwick Forge & Fabricating Corporation. In 1968 it was again sold to the Whittaker Corporation and they continued to build freight cars until 1982/83 when it closed. The Berwick Freight Car Company (a subsidiary of Chicago West Pullman Heavy Industries) was the successor to the Berwick Forge and Fabricating and began operations in 1982/83 and continued until the early 1990's.
