Preserving Arvin


Friends 0 Comments 03/15/2019  

In 1919, Q.G. Noblitt, Frank Sparks, and Al Redmond formed a small manufacturing business then known as the Indianapolis Air Pump Company.  Later known as Indianapolis Pump & Tube and then Noblitt-Sparks, it took on the name Arvin in 1950.  In 2000, after a merger with Meritor, Inc, it became ArvinMeritor for a few years.  But then, sadly, Arvin disappeared from the name as well as the corporate landscape of America and the globe.  This site is dedicated to documenting its history, its people, and its products.
