Within another month, if the promises of those interested are to be relied upon, Barberton will be able to boast of another industry which will be known as the largest of its kind in the entire world. The Electrical Insulator Manufacturing Co., with a capital of $100,000, has been incorporated for the purpose of taking over the property of the Barberton Pottery Co. Since the plant passed into the hands of the courts about a year ago, it has been lying idle. O. C. Barber, H. B. Camp and M. O'Neil later purchased the property and a month ago A. L. Dyke, who has been for the past four years identified with insulator manufacturing companies at East Liverpool, secured an option on it. It has been developed that Mr. Dyke is at the head of a company in which some of the leading capitalists of Akron and Cincinnati are heavily interested.
