The East Liverpool plant of the General Electric Porcelain Company has not been in operation for four and one-half years, since its owners decided to move. At that time they received very attractive inducements from Parkersburg, W. Va., and decided to relocate the business there. The company dismantled the Ohio plant and removed some of the equipment to Parkcrsburg. However, ten kilns and all necessary buildings still remain.

The Virginian Potteries Co.. which operates a factory at New Lexington, Ohio, has selected a site of about six acres in South Charleston. W. Va., upon which it will erect a large porcelain electric insulator plant.
