In 1865 Martin B Schenck established a hardware business in Fulton , New York, and devoted his time to the conduct of his store until 1881. Although he met with a gratifying measure of success as a hardware merchant, he realized that there were not great opportunities for advancement in that line and accordingly in 1881 he sold out that business and determined to engage in manufacturing a double wheel caster which he had invented. He removed to New Haven in 1882 and for five years sought to gain a foothold as a manufacturer. He was hampered by his lack of experience, by insuffience capital and by litigation over patents, but in spite of all these obstacles had brought his plant to a paying basis when he suffered a heavy loss by fire. At this time he received promising inducements to remove his factory to Meriden and throughout the remainder of his life he was identified with industrial interests at this place.
