THE H. T. PAISTE COMPANY, Philadelphia, Pa., is now celebrating its tenth anniversary. It was just 10 years ago that Mr. Paiste commenced the manufacture of electrical specialties. The company now has over a hundred different specialties, including the well-known "Xntric " switches and various forms of sockets, cut-outs, etc. It was the first to use porcelain in the manufacture of switches and cut-outs. The porcelain used in the Paiste specialties is manufactured by the Imperial Porcelain Works. During the past year the Paiste Company has been busy perfecting machinery for the automatic construction of sockets, thus practically eliminating labor in the manufacture and at the same time improving the quality of the goods. This machinery has been completed and the first products are now being placed upon the market. The business of the H. T. Paiste Company has recently been reorganized by dividing it into two departments, the Eastern and Western. The Western department, both manufacturing and selling, is under the direct supervision of Mr. Edward A. Jenkins, who has for many years been connected with the home office and is well known in the trade.
