Basically De La Vergne was a NYC Company, In 1918 the business was purchased by the William Cramp & Sons Ship and Engine Building Company. In the fall of 1928 all De La Vergne operations were moved into the Philadelphia shops of I. P. Morris, a Cramp subsidiary, later part of the Baldwin Locomotive Works, and later, again, consolidated at the sprawling Eddystone Works.
