The Maytag-Mason Motor Co.
Waterloo, Iowa

The Maytag-Mason Motor Co. built a popular American Automobile called the Maytag from 1910 to 1915. The Maytag was named after the founder, Fred L. Maytag. In 1893 F. L. Maytag started his first business producing farm equipment and in 1907 the well known Maytag washing machine.

Fred L. Maytag purchased the Mason Automobile Co. of Des Moines, Iowa which produced the American Automobile called the Mason. The Maytag succeeded the Mason with very little change in the automobiles themselves.

Fred L. Maytag purchased the Waterloo Motor Works buildings which manufactured gasoline automobile and marine engines. The Mason Automobile Co. was purchased by Fred L. Maytag in 1909 and production of the Maytag automobile began in 1910.  The Maytag automobile is most famous for its connection with Fred S. Duesenberg who was production superintendent for a short time.
