The company was established in 1904 as Philadelphia Carousel Company by Henry B. Auchy and Chester Albright after the pair acquired a business from Edward Joy Morris the previous year. The company built amusement devices such as carousels, roller coasters, and their trains. The company stopped manufacturing carousels in the 1930s. Their last ground-up coaster was Screamin' Eagle which opened in 1976, they continue to make wooden coaster trains.
The name of the company was changed to Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters in the early 1990s.
