Grit: October 22, 1961 – World Trade of 11 Industries Carries City Name Everywhere

Altogether all too many people believe it takes a Little League World Series game to get the City of Williamsport known around the world. The truth is that this city’s name, as written, “shipped from Williamsport U.S.A.,” reaches every country on the globe, affecting the lives of people everywhere—thanks to at least 11 Williamsport area

Altogether all too many people believe it takes a Little League World Series game to get the City of Williamsport known around the world.

The truth is that this city’s name, as written, “shipped from Williamsport U.S.A.,” reaches every country on the globe, affecting the lives of people everywhere—thanks to at least 11 Williamsport area industries.

Many “poor, starving” Chinese may be at this minute may be eating their daily morsel of rice on paper plates made by the C.A. Reed Company, two Yugoslavian power plants light their country with the aid of power pipes made by M.W. Kellogg Company power pipes division, petroleum products for the Middle East if Darling Valve and Manufacturing Company removed its valves.

Swedish schoolchildren would have trouble without paper made with the aid of machinery made from Sprout Waldron and Company of Muncy. A hospital in India is being heated by a boiler from E. Keeler Company, people behind the Iron Curtain depend on Radio Free Europe with the help of Sylvania Radio Products Inc. radio tube division for the truth.

Leather from Armour Leather Company protects the feet of Filipino children from hot stones, many Frenchmen keep their families warm with “anthratubes” from the Axeman-Anderson Company. West Germans depend on radar and tubes from the Sylvania Electric Products to alert them to threats from Communist East Berlin.

Storage drawers and cabinets from Vidmar Inc. protect Canadian tools to build their nation, and every country in the Free World uses Avco Manufacturing Company’s Lycoming Division airport to transport and defend their people.

Every one of the above mentioned is a Williamsport area manufacturer.

We do not enjoy a one-way proposition, however, in order for those manufacturers to their goods for abroad, many depend on foreign products themselves.
