Victor Insulators Was Begun In 1893


VICTOR Victor Insulators, on Maple Avenue, the birthplace of high-voltage porcelain, has been in operation since 1893, except for a couple of years during the "30s."

The company started out as Locke Insulator Corp., operating under the direction or Fred Locke, and continued under that name until 1932 when it became a victim of the depression.

Locke Insulator which had previously opened a plant in Baltimore, Md., closed its plant in Victor. The operation remained closed until 1935 when local people reopened the plant
