Transcript Our Manufacturing Plant THE history of The J. L. Mott Iron Works is one of the most interesting of American business concerns. In 1828, when the nation was still in its infancy, the original Mott Plant took root in Mott Haven, near New York City. From this humble beginning Mott achievement has steadily kept pace with national progress. What the American public required in sanitary wares, Mott made it a point to provide—in many instances by anticipation. After a few years it became apparent that the plant was too small to supply the demands put upon it. Enlargement followed enlargement. Then, in 1894, the potteries were established in Trenton, N. J., where, in 1907, the entire manufacturing plant was concentrated. Thus, for almost a century, the Mott Industry has grown and thrived. And the reason for this growth is plain: The Mott organization has kept abreast of, or even ahead of, the needs of the American people. New fixtures, thought a luxury a few years ago, are now part of the large daily output. The feature of concentration is one of very great importance. Manufacturing all goods in one plant assures the proper assembling and fitting of all component parts, enabling correct and complete shipments to be made, and a prompt and efficient service rendered.
