In 1896, Haynes and Edgar Apperson formed the Haynes-Apperson Automobile Company. They incorporated the company the following year. The company enjoyed greater success than many of the other small automobiles companies of the time. In 1902, Edgar Apperson left, but the name did not change until September 1905 when it became the Haynes Automobile Company. This is despite the fact that Apperson began his own company, Apperson Brothers Automobile Company, when he left in 1902. The Haynes Automobile Company went bankrupt in 1924.
