PORCELAIN COMPANY TO BUILD NEW PLANT

The Imperial Porcelain Company, of Trenton, N. J., is so rushed with orders and cramped for room at the present time that work on a branch factory to be located in Asbury Park, N. J., will begin in about a month, according to an announcement made by the chamber of commerce of the latter city, which sent a committee to visit the Trenton plant, investigate working conditions, inspect the payroll, and to confer with the owners of the Imperial Company on the establishment of the branch pottery. Frederick A. Duggan, part-owner of the Imperial Porcelain Company, is one of the pioneer porcelain manufacturers of America. He was engaged in the pottery industry in Trenton when he conceived the idea of a plant devoted exclusively to the manufacture of porcelain. After launching his enterprise, he received his first big order from a Chicago concern, which called for a large number of porcelain lemon squeezers. Seven kilns are now being operated at the Trenton plant, and four will be built at the Asbury Park plant, altho the layout will be designed to accommodate twelve.
