Electrical Porcelain Plants Very Active


The past fortnight has shown particular activity among the electrical porcelain plants at Trenton, N. J., and responding to the call for these specialities numerous plans are under way for increased capacity at different plants. The Trenton Porcelain Co. is having plans drawn for the erection of a new one and two-story plant to be located in the vicinity of New Brunswick. The extension to the plant of the Star Porcelain Co., referred to in a recent issue of Brick and Clay Record, will be located on Muirhead Avenue, adjoining the present works, and is estimated to cost about $6,000. The Union Electrical Porcelain Co., Hamilton Avenue and Clark Street, has plans under way for the early rebuilding of its plant, destroyed by fire on January 21, with loss estimated at close to $100,000, including equipment. The damage is of serious extent; this company is operated by the Duncan Mackenzie's Sons Co., with machine works in this immediate vicinity.
