Relninger, President and General Manager of the Powhatan Brass & Iron Works, now a subsidiary company of the Automatic Sprinkler Corporation of America, speaks briefly at the ground.breaking ceremonies for a new addition to the plant's Foundry, as members of the company's board of directors and Federal and State officials listen. THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD SPEAKS--- Harry E. Flggle, Jr., chairman of the board of di- rectors and chief executive Officer of Automatic Sprinkler Corporation of America, parent company of Powhatan Brass & Iron Works, speaks briefly before breaking ground for the new addition to the Powhatan Foundry. About 25 years ago C. F. Reininger, President and General Manager of the Powhatan Brass & Iron Works, of Ranson, not only had visions, but strong convictions of having the brass foundry, as the in- dustry was then referred too by local citizenry, become the industrial leader in the nation and possibly the world in the field of fire-prevention and fire-fightittg equipment. So he drew up a long range blue print for progress. But because of World War II, it was late in the 1950's before it was possible for Powhatan to move on this broad and comprehensive expansion program. Since it was started five years ago, the expansions have not only brought more and larger production, shipping and administrative facilities to Powhatan, but al ) an alliance with the Automatic Sprinkler Corpor. alton, a company which is fast becoming one of the industrial giants of the nation, with plants located in many parts of the country which provide a di- versity of products to serve the millions of peoples of this country and the world. At noon Thursday, Au st 25, when round was broken for the new $1.5-million addition to the Powha a:n Bra foundry, another milestone on the Road to Progress was reached by the comvany. The ground-breaking had a number of historic aspects to it. For instance thin latest expansion orogram, when comnleted, will nlaee Powhatan at the toy of ladder in four differgnt fields as a sunnlier of fire vrevenfion and fire-fiCh ing ec|uinment. It will mean that in the future Powhatan will be able to do all of it's own rmttern castings not have to farm some of this work out; it will mean the per- sonnel force at the 1Man will eventually be in- creased, thus r, ouring more money into the econ- omy of community and county: and when the board of dir e oru of Automatic Snrinkler C )rnor. orion, of which Powhatan is now one of a number of it's snbsidiarie,q, met at the Ranson alant, it marked the first time in the history of Automatic Snrinkler, the eomnanv has ever held a board meet- ing at any of it's subsidiary plants. ANOTHER HISTORIC EVENT---For the first time in the history of Automatic Sprinkler Corpo~on of America, the company's board ,of directors came to Ranson, ThUrsday, Aug. 25, and held a m~ at the Powhatan Brass & Iron Works plant, a subsidiary of Automatic. The above picture shows the board in session in the directors room at Powhatan. ,y~.~= .................................. SPECIAL GUESTS, FRIENDS CAME---The breaking of ground for the new $1.5-million foundry addition at Powhatan Brass & Iron Works, in Ranson, was a special occasion, and it brought many special and prominent dignitaries, guests and friends to the plant.
