END OF THE BLAST AT MONTREAL
Summary of the Season's Operations is
Given — Extensive improvements and
Repairs Will be Made While
the Big Plant is Idle.
The Diamond Flint Glass Co.'s big plant, Montreal, Can., closed down yesterday for the usual summer shutdown period after registering a good run since last September. During the shutdown a number of extensive improvements and repairs will be made by the management, including the erection of new buildings and the installation of new machines and other equipment which, according to General Superintendent David Pugh, who was in Pittsburg this week on a business trip, will make the plant one of the most modernly equipped in the country.
During the past season a fair demand for the various lines of glassware manufactured by the company has been noted and present indications point to a run next blast fully as good as the past season. Affairs at the factory progressed smoothly since the beginning of the blast and a good production of ware was in evidence from start to finish. The capacity of the plant will not be increased by the erection of any additional furnaces during the summer, but with the proposed added facilities a larger production is practically assured for next season.
The skilled force on this well known company's payroll was composed of 106 shops and an immense amount of ware has been turned out since last September. Practically all lines of glassware (general flint, bottles and machine goods) are made at this plant, and the product is shipped to all sections of the country. According to present plans of the management resumption will in all probability take place early in September.
