Brookfield Glass Company to Effect Liquidation


The plant and factory site of the Brookfield Glass Company, 2 Rector Street, New York City, is for sale, and the company announces that it intends to go out of the glass-insulator business. It was started in the year 1853.

The factory site of about 150 acres is situated at Old Bridge, Middlesex County, N. J., where there are buildings covering about 44,000 sq.ft. The company has two blast furnaces of the continuous tank size, 20 ft. x 30 ft. and 10 ft x 14 ft., seven lehrs, four ovens, three stacks, etc.

It has a glass sand bank of 62 acres and plant at Jamesburg, N. J. About twenty-four patents and patent rights are included, which in the company's opinion give the right to use a glass feeder and to make tests for blown glass by machinery.
