New Industry for Grantsville
Ira Hardman has received the machinery for making cement building blocks,
and has about completed the erection of the building which will house it.
It is expected that the finished product of the new plant will be turned
out in a short time.
The plant has a capacity of 150 blocks per day, ranging in size from
8x8x24 to 8x18x24. It is claimed that the block turned out by the
Hardman plant has many advantages over the old article, on account of the
superiority of the mixing process.
It is likely that the new hotel building will be built of the blocks
and other local builders will no doubt use it as its ultimate cost will
be much less than wood. A block 8x8x24, occupying 192 inches of wall
space, will sell for something like 40c.
