Download PDF for this date

A new plant, costing approximately $1,200,000, was dedicated here today by E.W. Bliss Company, of Canton, Ohio, in the presence of Pinchas Sapir, Israel’s Minister of Trade and Commerce; Oved Ben Ami, mayor of Nathanya; Carl Anderson, president of the company; and officials of the firm.

The new installation is being used to manufacture inclinable presses in capacities from two and one-half tons to 200 tons for export sales as well as for use in Israel’s growing industrial economy. The dedication followed the start of production by two months. Sizable orders are already in process for Israel and offshore customers, including English firms. Bliss has manufacturing plants in 11 cities in the United States and five countries abroad. It is a major producer of metalworking machinery, public safety equipment, electrical components and aerospace products.
