Snyder III, president of the Shenango Furnace Co. of Pittsburgh. Operation of the firm, Bonney-Floyd Co. will be under Wendell McKown of Dover, general manager of Shenango-Penn, who will step up as general manager for both operations, reporting directly to G. Whitney Snyder, vice president, at the Shenango-Penn executive offices in Pittsburgh. “Purchase of Bonney-Floyd has enhanced our operation in Dover considerably,” McKown said this morning. “A flow of technical know-how between Dover and Columbus personnel and a joining of the 2 sales organizations certainly will improve our competitive position in the casting field. “There also is the possibility that the Columbus plant will get some of the heat-treating and X-ray work that the Dover plant The Dover plant in turn wilt machine some of the castings produced by Bonney-Floyd. Additional machining facilities may be required. “The move should provide greater work stability, leveling off the peaks and valleys created by orders throughout the year.” Snyder expressed pleasure “now that 2 of the nation’s old and well established foundry companies had joined forces.” All assets of Bonney-Floyd were acquired by Shenango Furnace for an undisclosed price. Snyder added that the Bonney-Floyd operation and that of Shenango-Penn, which have similar sales volumes, will be closely tied together. John Bonney Jr., who has served 7 years as Bonney-Floyd president, stated that he and other members of the board of directors had felt for some time that they could further serve the future interests of their custom ers, employes and stockholders by becoming part of a large progressive industrial organization. “Our employes will continue in their present capacities, although some will have their titles changed,” he added. “By joining Shenango, we shall have all of the advantages of working with one of the oldest and largest centrifugal foundries in the country, Shenango-Penn.” Acquisition of Bonney-Floyd follows on the heels of the Sep tember completion of a major remodeling and expansion program at Shenango-Penn. Bonney Floyd Co. was founded in 1906 and is one of the largest producers of castings for nuclear power service in the country. Since 1946, -.he company has produced a multitude of castings for atomic energy projects and related fields, ranging in weight from IO to 30,000 pounds. Other types are used in compressor shells, steam turbines.

Spies told commissioners today that there was no legal requirement forcing them to advertise for bids but that the law does make them responsible for providing adequate quarters for the court. Spies stated: “My impression is that the board has never actually let it be known it is looking for court space.” Commissioner Jacob Dummer-muth retorted “Until a recent letter, Judge Charles Eckert never actually asked for new quarters.” The commissioners said Eckert previously had asked about the cleaning of the quarters which the court now occupies on W. 2nd St. Commissioners said they were looking for floor space covering about 1,000 to 1,200 square feet.
