HARRISBURG SfsHßf TELEGRAPH LXXXIV— No. 161 EVERY DEPARTMENT OF BIG PIPE WORKS AT FIE CAPACITY Fifty Per Cent. Increase in Num ber of Employes; Every Inch of Space in Use HAVE TO TURN DOWN ORDERS Large Contracts With Foreign Countries; Work to Con tinue Full Blast Every department running at full capacity, an increase of fifty per cent. In the number of employes, and the ad dition of four new buildings within the past few months is the record the Harrisburg Pipe and Pipe Bending Works, according to W. T. Hildrup, Jr., secretary-treasurer and general manager of the plant. The addition of the new buildings together with a large amount of new machinery is due the big increase in orders received this year by the com pany. Mr. Hildrup In speaking this morn ing of conditions at the plant said that the shops had been expanded to the full extent and that additional build ing on the 22 acres of ground owned by the company would be impossible as all available space has been used. One Department Doubled One of the new buildings erected is SSO by 200 feet with a floor space of more than one acre. More than one half mile of private railroad tracks has been added to connect the shops, while new machinery has been installed for making seamless gas cylinders. This department has been doubled in the capacity of its output. , As fast as new machinery arrives additional men will be employed by the company. Owing to lack of space for necessary equipment according to Mr. Hildrup, large orders for cylinders and billets have been declined. Recently a large United States Gov ernment order for three-inch shrapnel was completed and shipped. At no shrapnel is being sent out r from the local plant. The machinery used in manufacturing the cases is also used for turning out large air cylinders. When the American order was be ing handled 1,000 cases were made in one week, but It is believed that with new machinery Installed this amount could be increased if necessary. Big Danish Orders Many of the orders being handled are American ones, although the Pipe Bending Works has just landed a large contract with the Danish Government for pipe coils. This is a duplicate of a contract filled just six months ago and shipped to Denmark via Liver pool, England. At present officials are figuring on a hid for a Government order for air cylinders to equip a number of sub marines. The contract will not he let. It is believed for some time, but it is understood that many of the large manufacturing concerns in the country are after the order. 100 Per Cent. Capacity Mr. Hildrup also said that from present indications the work at the plant would continue at 100 per cent capacity Indefinltey, depending largely upon domestic orders. In speaking of detectives supposed to be employed at the plant, Mr. Hild rup said that six men are paid by the company to guard the property and keep tresspassers away from the shops. The men are also commissioned as officers by the Governor. Uncle Sam's man will stop every day with news from Home, if you will cali the Circulation Department on the phone.
