|DH WEB, Welcomes Wolfington Body Company|
The Wolfington tradition all started in 1876, when the young British immigrant Alexander J. Wolfington set out to apply his skill as a blacksmith to carriage building. He had no idea he would found a business that would not only be thriving 130 years later but would be a major force in bus transportation. He just wanted to build the best horse-drawn carriage in Philadelphia. In a converted feed store on North Twentieth Street, he built the first Wolfington carriage, a " buggy," with such durability that it held up under the heavy use of doctors traveling their rounds. The doctors were impressed. They told their patients who told their neighbors and the popularity of the Wolfington carriage grew. In time, Wolfington began to make carriages for Philadelphia's well to do. Eventually the company was called upon to make the ultimate carriage of the 1890s, the Brougham - a private, four-wheeled, closed carriage drawn by a single horse and driven by a coachman. The superb craftsmanship of the Wolfington Brougham gave Wolfington a national reputation.
Wolfington Body Company, one of the nation's oldest continuously operating bus distributors, has been serving the transportation needs of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware for 130 years. When asked how the company has survived all these years, Richard Wolfington, company President said, " We have been able to adapt to the changing times. Each time the transportation industry has changed we have looked at the change as a positive rather than a negative and used it as an opportunity to grow. This combined with our commitment to the principles upon which my great grandfather, Alex J. founded his business, namely quality, innovation and personal service has been the key."
