The Pressed Steel Car Company came into existence 17 February 1899 for the purpose of manufacturing passenger, freight and street railway cars and to make trucks, wheels, and other parts of cars. It was an amalgamation of the Schoen Pressed Steel Company of Woods Run, Pittsburgh, and the Fox Solid Pressed Steel Company, with factories at McCandless Avenue, Pittsburgh, and Joliet, 30 miles south-west of Chicago. Later another large factory was constructed at McKees Rocks, Pittsburgh. Another plant on Torrance Avenue in Chicago's Hegewisch neighbourhood was taken over.
Working conditions at McKees Rocks were poor, leading to a major workers’ strike in 1909. After the strike was over, the factory resumed production of tens of thousands more freight cars, passenger cars, and subway cars. According to some sources, during World War II it converted to the production of military tanks, but if so it was probably just tank components rather than complete vehicles. It returned to railroad car production after the war, but was merged and closed in 1956.
