It was our plan from the outset to devote time and money to the securing of factories at Romulus, for which purpose the 2o per cent, gross receipts from all sales has been set aside. Our success thus far has exceeded our most sanguine expectations. Within the short space of nine months FOUR FACTORIES HAVE BEEN LOCATED The J. M. Hommel M'f 'g Co., formerly located in Ie troit, moved to Romulus last fa] I. Their plant consists of four buildings, the main building being 50 f eet in width by 156 in depth, two stories. In addition to these are the storehouse, dry kiln and paint house. This company has an established trade, and does a large business in the States lying between the Atlantic and the Mississipi. The RomUlUS Knitting Mills, also a two-story building, manufacture all kinds of knitted goods. The above concerns are now in active operation. The Seestedt Furniture Co. were manufacturen at Wayne, Mich. Having outgrown their old quarters and desiring better shipping facilities for their growing business, they decided to B move to Romulus. Their building is now under construction. It 8 will be a two-story building 40 ft. in lenglh by 144 ft, in depth. The Colunibian Wire Works, whose buildings are now ■ being erected, will be the largest and most extensive of the four faetones. The principal product will be wire cloth. The phenomenal record we have made in inducing factories to f& lócate at Romulus is a proof of the desirability of this point as a IS manufacturing center. With the coming of the Pennsylvania RailI road, adding materially to the shipping facilities of the place, we Á expect in the near future many additions to our already good list of factories.
