Founded by Glenn A. Crosby, this firm was the machine shop for the American Can Co.
The plant of the E. S. Stiles Press Co., of Watertown, N. Y., including patterns, patents, machine tools, etc., has been purchased and will be operated by G. A. Crosby & Co., Chicago, Ill. The plant is now being installed and the purchasers announce that the orders will be accepted for early delivery. The reputation of G. A. Crosby & Co. for the highest grade of workmanship and their many years of experience in the manufacture of presses, dies, and special machinery, guarantees careful and accurate attention to all possible requirements in construction. We learn with much pleasure that E. S. Stiles, the former treasurer of the E. S. Stiles Press Co., has associated himself with G. A. Crosby & Co. and will give his personal attention to all matters pertaining to the old business. This gives a positive assurance that all orders formerly filled by his old company, will receive prompt and satisfactory execution.
G. A. Crosby & Co., of Sarnia, Ont., has been incorporated with a capital of $600,000 to operate a foundry and machine shop. The directors are James L. Board, William S. Cumming, Charles R. Morrison and Thos. H. Cook.
