The Mica Insulator company, the originator and patentee of Micanite and Empire insulating materials, has experienced a heavy increase in its business. It states that some of the finest electrical machinery ever manufactured is insulated with Micanite. The long experience of this concern in this particular line of work enables it to produce what is said to be the best segment manufactured. The company has passed beyond the experimental stage in the manufacture of insulation. The Mica Insulator company's factories are located in Schenectady, N. Y., and Stansted, Essex, England. Charles W. Jefferson, formerly associated with the General Electric company, is the company's manager at the Schenectady works. Fred W. Dwyer, also formerly associated with the General Electric company, is the manager of the English factory. The Mica company says that these two gentlemen possess great ability along this line, and those interested in the designing of new apparatus or in securing a remedy for difficult problems connected with the successful insulation of old machinery will do well to correspond directly with these gentlemen. The company's offices are located in London, England, 12 Camomile street; New York city, 218 Water street; Chicago, 117-119 Lake street. The company also has branch offices, with stocks, in the following-named cities: Cincinnati, under the management of the Monroe Brass and Wire company; St. Louis, under the management of Arthur S. Parttridge; Cleveland, represented by the George Worthington company; San Francisco, under the management of the Brooks-Follis Electric company. These agencies enable the company to distribute quickly and easily its materials in the respective territories.
