Champion Porcelain Company Organized
TOLEDO, Sept. 12 -- The Champion Porcelain Co. has been organized here by the Champion Spark Plug Co. to take over the business of the Jeffery DeWitt Co. of Detroit. The new corporation is capitalized at $750,000 under the laws of Michigan.
For many years the Champion Spark Plug Co. held an interest in the Detroit concern which manufactured insulators exclusively for Champion. Recently a deal was consummated whereby the Toledo company gained complete ownership of the Jeffery firm. The Champion Porcelain Co. is a subsidiary of the spark plug company. Dr. J. A. Jeffery is president of the new corporation and is known as a leading ceramic engineer.
