Johnson & Son (formerly Johnson's Wax), cleaning and chemical products; and Arthur B. Modine, heat exchangers. Other notable industry in Racine was shipping. Racine's harbor was central to the shipping industry in the late 1800s. Also, Racine was an early car manufacturing center. One of the world's first automobiles was built in Racine in the early 1870s as was the Pennington Victoria tricycle.
