The Hemingray Glass


The accompanying illustration shows the office building at the works of the Hemingray Glass Company at Muncie, Ind. The plant at Muncie covers nine acres of ground, the Hemingray Glass Company being the largest manufacturer of glass insulators in the world. The capacity of the plant is 50,000,000 a year. The firm was established in 1848, at Covington, Ky. and the company started to move its plant from Covington to Muncie in 1888. The plant at Muncie was gradually built up until it was of a sufficient size to abandon the plant at Covington. The company carries a stock sufficient to supply demands and make immediate shipments. The main office is at Covington, Ky.
