Acquire Large Interest in the Locke Insulator Corporation.


The General Electric Company has acquired a substantial interest in the Locke Insulator Corporation. This arrangement, it is said, will result in full engineering and research co-operation between the two companies with respect to insulator problems and extend further the usefulness of the Locke Insulator Corporation in the electrical field.

The Locke company will now produce the well-known Hewlett high-tension transmission insulator taking advantage of the additional facilities supplied by the completion of its new plant at Baltimore, Md. Such engineering and research co-operation, it is said, is highly desirable, for, prior to this time, insulation improvements and developments have had great difficulty in keeping pace with the rapidly changing electrical art.
