The Locke Insulator Manufacturing Company, of Victor, New York, manufacturers of the Locke patent high-potential insulators, have broken ground for an addition to their present works. This addition will be a modern eight-kiln pottery specially designed for their particular work, and will be constructed entirely of reinforced concrete. This plant will be 180 feet square and two stories high and will include the most modern methods of handling clay, coal, etc. There has been a very considerable extension in the Locke Company's plant during the past year, and this latest addition to the works will make them, it is understood, by far the largest in the world devoted to this exclusive product, and nearly equivalent to all other American productions combined.
