Big Export Demand for Electric Porcelain


Electric porcelain potteries are complaining of a shortage of fuel, but all plants have exceptionally good business on file. The kiln capacity of this industry is to be increased this season by the erection of a $2,000,000 plant at Baltimore by the Locke Insulator Co., and the erection of a new plant near Star City, W. Va., by Otto Schenk and associates of Wheeling, W. Va. Additional kilns are also to be added to the production of the Findlay Electric Porcelain Co., at Findlay, Ohio. The demand for this line for export is showing a marked increase this year.
