GREAT PACIFIC WEST
JUST THE PLAIN, SIMPLE TRUTH ABOUT
CALIFORNIA AND THE PACIFIC STATES.
The California Glass Insulator Company's plant in full blast in Long Beach. At present only the first of three units will be in operation, giving employment to sixty men. Five large buildings are erected, and are the main manufacturing plant, power house, store rooms and office. Adjoining the three and one-half acres upon which these buildings stand is a two and one-half acre site which the glass company has acquired and which will be used for the installation of a second unit for the blowing of bottles, chimneys, jars, all sizes of vials and other things in that line. When the two units are in steady operation there will be a third added the site to be four acres upon the north of the plant. This will allow the manufacture of window plate and reinforced wire glass.
Glass manufacturers have at last recognized the value of climate in their work. Operations here in Southern California can be continued the year around, whereas in the east some months of the year are lost owing to the intense cold. The Officers of the California Glass Insulator Company are: Jules Kauffman, president; E. H. Fosdick, vice president; Stanley S. Stonaker; secretary; John Morris, treasurer, and Robert P. Frisk, general manager. Directors are John C. Orth, Arthur C. Munn and William Schade.
