New Machine Shop - Berkley Hills - 1953

James Kovalcik (left), 508 Edwards Hill Apartments and Harold Myers of Indiana are shown at work in the machine shop of the Wendel Manufacturing Company, Berkley Hills. The shop was installed in the aluminum awning firm's plant during the past year at a cost of about $100,000. It is part of the concern's expansion program. Dies and other equipment for the Wendel firm's branch fabricating shops will be machined here. The machine shop is tooled to build a complete fabricating unit every 60 days, enabling the awning firm to set up a new branch shop every two months, if conditions warrant.
