Studebaker Corporation of Canada, Limited

Studebaker cars and trucks for the Canadian market were produced in Hamilton, Ontario, in what was one of the most modern and up-to-date plants in Canada. The Studebaker Corporation of Canada, Limited was directly responsible for the sales, parts, accessories and service operations in the Canadian market. Total property area of the plant covered approximately 20 acres and floor space of the plant itself was approximately 325,000 square feet. This plant remained in operation after the shutdown of South Bend in 1963. The last Studebaker rolled off the line in Hamilton in 1966.
