The Star Porcelain Co., Trenton, N. J., has increased its capacity fully 50 per cent during 1906 and from the present outlook the good work will continue. The company has moved into larger and more comfortable offices.

The Hartford Faience Co., Hartford, Conn., is enjoying the benefits of a new slip-house equipment in its factory. The product of the plant is mostly tile and porcelain.

The Wirt Mfg. Co., South Hanson, Mass., is ready to start its plant and now has everything in readiness to make a start. Only a portion of the factory will be operated at first as a great deal of the special machinery has not as yet been set in place. The plant is constructed entirely of concrete and is thoroughly fireproof. The machinery is all electrically driven and the capacity will be at the start, four 25-ft. kilns. More will be added just as fast as increased business will justify.

The East Liverpool Potteries Co. has been dissolved and The Globe Pottery Co. takes the Globe factory of that company and the United States Pottery Co. takes the United States plant.

The Globe Pottery Co., East Liverpool, O., is putting in some new machinery.

The R. Thomas & Sons Co., Lisbon, O., is making improvements to the slip-house there and installing new equipment.

Pass & Seymour, Solvay, N. Y., are increasing the capacity of their plant by the installation of an additional filter press which will materially increase production in that end of their plant.

The Akron Hi-Potential Porcelain Co., Barberton, O., a new concern which entered the field not long ago, has its plant running in full and is considering an addition to same. The company will add shortly a plant for the production of nothing but high-potential porcelain. It also manufactures standard porcelain.
