One of the only attempts to describe the business of carriage factories is this recent book:
Kinney, Thomas. The Carriage Trade: Making Horse-drawn Vehicles in America. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins, 2004

And the bible for all technical details is:
Berkebile, Don. Carriage Terminology:  An Historical Dictionary.  Washington:  Smithsonian Institute, 1978.
