company will be located in the Standard Manufacturing
on Franklin Avenue.
L. Dibble, president of the company, has just completed the deal
for the building and is in the city for purpose of having some
made in the structure. Local contractors are giving estimates
on the improvements and the work is to be taken care of as fast
possible. Machinery will be shipped in a few weeks and the company
will give employment to thirty people. The purpose of the company
to design, manufacture and sell folding paper cartons, display
cartons and display advertising particularly pertaining to cut-out
L. Dibble, president of the company, has been connected with
the folding carton business for the past twenty-three years.
he was superintendent in complete charge of manufacturing at
the Universal Paper Products Co., Clyde, Ohio, and when the
consolidated with the Gardner & Harvey Co., of Middletown,
he assumed the same duties there. From the first of March
to the first of March 1926 he was superintendent in charge of
production at the Standard Paper Co., of Kalamazoo, Mich.
of these concerns are among the leaders in the folding paper

above four officers with the addition of one other constitute
the board of directors. All the offices of the company, except
will be directly active in the production or sales.
Dibble, speaking of the company and its prospects had the following
to say this morning:
plant which we intend to install will give us a production of
about four carloads of paper board conversion per week. And
dollars and cents will produce a business of $40,000.00 to $50,000.00
per month. The cost of this equipment is approximately
varying slightly above or below according to the equipment needs
at the time of installation.
equipment will all be new machinery of the very latest model
and style and will be the best that we can buy to successfully
folding paper cartons. Each unit will be motor driven. The main
equipment will be printing presses and cutting and
presses bought of either Babcock Printing Press & Mfg. Co.,
or The Miehle Printing Press Co. The glue machines will
the latest improved Model A type machine made by International
Paper Box Machine Co., Nashua, N. H. The auxiliary
will be purchased from the leading manufacturers of goods in
Shelby as a center point and including the manufacturing towns
within a radius of seventy-five miles it gives us probably the
largest carton using territory of like dimension in the United
States. This territory includes a large number of cities and
includes a large number of small towns and villages composed
largely of manufacturing industries.
hardware industry and the rubber industry are particularly well
represented in this territory. There are also many manufacturers
proprietary medicines in this territory. These together with
the many varied industries which are users of cartons today open
which would require a plant a great many times our size to serve.
carton industry has reached the size and importance which it
has attained today not so much through the development from the
as from the demands of the user. It will our endeavor to obtain
immediately such share of business as will be necessary to keep
plant in operation and then center our efforts on the development
of new uses for folding paper cartons. Naturally it is along
that the largest profits are made. We might mention also that
there are innumerable buyers of cartons in the market today who
but cannot obtain, the high quality of work which their products
require due to the centering of production in the large board
plants. One concern with whom the writer is familiar is today
operating their carton division about ninety percent of
made on the cost plus basis only.
is the development of this type of business in which we are particularly
interested. You will realize the futility of trying to start
on this basis and also realize that it will take time and endeavor
to build up the better trade.
this in mind our immediate efforts will be centered on securing
business enough to operate our plant to full capacity from the
fields. It is the opinion of the writer that in the immediate
vicinity of Shelby there is a carton consumption of from ten
twelve cars per month. *
