   AMERICAN  LaFRANCE  ENGINES  
page 1   

The American LaFrance Company has a long history. It is the descendant of several earlier hand draw engine and steamer manufacturers. In 2007 it will be 175 years old. The decoration used on these motorized engines comes from the LaFrance Company of the steam power era.

The LaFrance Company was started by Truckson and Asa Hyenveux. These French immigrants found that Americans could not pronounce their name, so they changed it to LaFrance.
