The Service Motor Truck Company of Wabash, Indiana, manufactured delivery and
repair trucks for industrial buyers. The Service Automobile Company of Kankakee, Illinois, purchased a
vacant industrial building in Wabash, Indiana and began production of trucks and automobiles. According to Wabash historian Peter Jones, soon Service was only making four-ton and five-ton trucks designed for
delivery and freight service.vi The company incorporated the Service Motor Truck Company during this period. Service provided trucks to the United States Army during World War I, and produced some
aircraft starting in 1922. Service began building gasoline-powered interurban streetcars in the 1920s, but later sold that operation.
