PROMINENT GLASS MAN IN PITTSBURG.
Affairs at the Diamond Flint Glass Co.'s Plant
Made Next Season.
David Pugh, superintendent of the Diamond Flint Glass Co.'s plant, Montreal, Can., was in Pittsburg this week on business. He left a number of good orders for materials while in the Busy City. The Diamond plant made a good run during the past season and gave employment to about 100 shops. Five furnaces were operated during the greater part of the year.
Next season tank No. 4 will be devoted to the manufacture of bottles exclusively. The output of this tank during the past year was a line of miscellaneous ware. All the other tanks will be devoted to the same lines as heretofore. Mr. Pugh reports a good demand for the company's product and said the blast of 1906-1907 was one of the best in the history of the concern.
Supt. Pugh formerly had charge of the bottle plant at Everett, Pa., which has been idle for two years. The factory building was sold recently to the Huntington & Broad Top Railroad Co. and the molds, tools, snaps and fixtures will be sold at public sale Friday, July 12, at that place. These represent an outlay of about $20,000 and will be disposed of at a low figure. All the appliances have been kept in good condition and parties in need of factory equipment will no doubt be able to secure a great bargain.
