Many residents of Stoughton employed in the wagon industries. When freight and passenger service between Stoughton and Milwaukee began in 1853, it ensured the success of the industry. The T.G. Mandt Wagon Works were established in 1865. In 1889, the company reorganized as the Stoughton Wagon Company. T.G. Mandt began another wagon firm in 1896, which was sold to the Moline Plow Company after Mandt's death in 1902. After the decline of the Stoughton wagon industry in the 1920's, new vehicle and part factories such as Highway Trailer and the Stoughton Cab and Body Company were established.
