Haifa Foundry is Completed; to Employ 350

Download PDF for this date

This city is rapidly becoming the Pittsburgh of Palestine, the movement receiving a strong impetus by the complettion of the vast plant of the Palestine Foundries and Metal Works.

A leading light in the enterprise is A. Kremener, who was in charge of a similar establishment in Germany. The plant embraces a modern foundy with furnaces, an iron-rolling unit and a metal rolling mill. It is expected that 350 workmen will be employed when operations are started.

The Palestine Electric Corporation’s new transformer station here is to be put into commission shortly to supply the extensive demands of industry and agriculture. In addition, service will be given to homes in urban centers throughout the country.

Four hundred men have been engaged in building the station and mounting machinery, exclusive of the regular staff.
