70th Anniversary of WWII
July 1st, 2015
The 70th anniversary of the end of WWII is here, and at Carroll-Wuertz Tire Company, we wanted to take a look back at Dayton, OH’s contributions to the war effort. Dayton and Ohio in general have long been associated with tires and the rubber industry, but there was much more than that going on here 70-plus years ago, and it all helped contribute to victory in the war:
- Dayco: Along with tires in Dayton, OH, Dayco was manufacturing hoses, pontoons, life rafts, ponchos and many other rubber-based product for the war effort.
- NCR: National Cash Register was home to the United States Naval Computing Machine Laboratory; together, their research broke the codes used by the German military, which was key to prevailing over the Germans.
