The Lewis Spring & Axle Co.
Chelsea and Jackson, Michigan

The Lewis Spring & Axle Co. had factories in Chelsea and Jackson, Michigan when it produced an American Automobile called the Hollier from 1915 to 1921. Charles Lewis former president of the Jackson Automobile Co. was the builder of the Hollier.

The Hollier was equipped with a 40 horsepower V-8 engine designed by The Lewis Spring & Axle Company. Some six cylinder Falls engines were used.

Sales were slow and the eight cylinder engine was discontinued when material shortages became critical during World War 1. Hollier production peaked at 3,000 units in 1916 but never fully resumed after the war. The Lewis Spring & Axle Co. failed in 1921 due to the insistence of Charles Lewis producing only open models despite the trend towards closed automobiles.
