About the American Locomotive Works (ALCO)

In 2008 the property was rehabilitated. The Foundry Associates purchased ALCO in the fall of 2013 and has recently completed the environmental remediation and subsequent lease up of this historic 5-building, 200,000 square foot office park. 

The American Locomotive Company (ALCO) was created in 1901 with the merger of eight locomotive manufacturers including the Rhode Island Locomotive Works located in Providence. In the early 1900s, all the company's locomotive manufacturing was moved to Schenectady, New York. At the time, ALCO became the second largest steam locomotive builder in the US and went on to build the famous "Big Boy" locomotives, the largest successful engine ever created.

1906 brought the production of the automobile into their Providence plant. It is here where the "Black Beast" and over 1,100 cars and trucks were built. But, as reported in the August 22, 1913 issue of the New York Times, American Locomotive Company decided to quit automobile and truck manufacturing and close down the Providence plant. American Locomotive was the third largest car manufacturer in the US. The Providence plant was then taken over in 1918 by US Rubber which ran the plant until the mid-1970s.
