STORM MANUFACTURING CO. GOES TO LARGER QUARTERS.

      "The Storm Manufacturing Co., Thompson, la., announces that on and after Aug. 1 (1919) its main office and factory will be located at Fourth street and Sixth avenue, S., Minneapolis, Minn., and that its Thompson, la., shops will be continued for manufacturing purposes only.

      The company's rapidly increasing business demanded considerably more floor space and better shipping facilities, both of which are accomplished by this change. The new home is a strictly modern structure, well lighted and affording ample room for present needs, as well as provision for expansion.

      The location is not entirely new to the company, as its Minneapolis branch factory has occupied the first-floor space in the building for the last two years, and the present change is in accordance with the original plans.

      The company makes the well-known line of Storm cylinder re-boring machines, both for hand and power operation; also connecting rod bearing reamers. Jigs and straightening gauges, valve port renewing tools, main bearing Babbitting and boring tools, piston vises and also special pistons for all makes of motors in different over-sizes." (Quote from 1919.)
