Argus (Newspaper) - December 23, 1960, Fremont, California Delivered to EVERY borne invNewark Vol. I, No. 35 Published at Newark, California Friday, December 23, I960, Plant Quarters Doubled in '60 By Paper Firm More people eating .more luncheon meat and sliced cheese are top-of-therlist on Guardian Paper Company's personal let- ter, .to Santa that Santa's intervention is a basic requirement, since Guardian is doing very well without it. The firm is just completing a plant expansion project which will double the storage capacity of the Newark factory. and .will provide a large, new laboratory. The factory expansion calls for a 160 x 240 concrete building, valued at Work began in late September. The company also recently made a ad dition to its offices. Guardian makes "polyethy- lene-coated and poly- ethylene.-coated cellophane is the stuff in which meats, cheese, sliced lunch meat and frozen fresh meat are wrapped. Other Guardian coated papers are used to paper bags, for mili- tary wrapping paper, for wrap- ping nursery stock, and in salt cans. Guardian doesn't make the pa- per. The factory buys raw paper stock arid coats it with a thin film of polyethylene applied with heat under pressure. The pro- cedure is a close relative to the process of lamination which coats a driver's license. The polyethylene protects against water, water vapors, alkalis, grease and corrosive bacteria, as any Guardian salesman will testify. Customers of the Newark plant are makers of paper sacks, salt companies, the U. S. .govern- ment (which'uses the paper for wrapping military parts and sup- plies which need to be protected from the weather) and meat- packaging companies which sup- ply the delicatessen counters of supermarkets. Guardian, which sits quietly behind an empty pasture at the intersection of Cherry Street and Central Avenue (6590 Central Avnue is its designated address) has been in Newark for the past three years. It moved to the city from Emeryville, where it had oprated a factory for two years. The firm is headed.by T. C. Sewell, president. It employs a staff of 65 persons.
