O anizing T O meet your industrial piping needs the Organizing Hand must provide men. Facilities alone, essential as they are, are not enough. Our great plant facilities, east, west, north, south, and branches strung across the continent to fabricate and distrib ute, still could not fully meet the needs of concerns like yours, here and in Canada. The Organizing Hand must provide men who know your problems and are able to solve them. How are such men prepared? By having them grow up to today's diffi cult tasks through solving a multitude of yesterday's practical problems. They mas tered those tasks under the guidance of older men whose experience had been gained in the same practical way. This progressive experi ence has been handed down in Grinnell Company through more than half a century. These men know what tomorrow's demands will be, and so are preparing for them in laboratories, machine shops and foundries. To see them preparing now for 1935 is to understand clearly how they have acquired the practical grasp and technical knowledge in these seven major fields of industrial piping: 1. Thermolier the copper unit heater. A better and cheaper means of heating many types of industrial and commercial buildings. 2. Thermoflex Radiator Traps with the famous Hydron bellows, insuring perfect operation of your steam radiators. 3. Pipe Fabrication. Pipe bends, welded headers and the Triple XXX line for super power work. 4. Cast Iron Pipe Fittings perfectly threaded, accu rately machined and rigidly inspected. 5. Pipe Hangers featuring easy adjustability after the piping is up. 6. Humidification Equipment. Complete systems em ploying the unique automatic control, Amco; furnished through American Moistening Company, a subsidiary. 7. Automatic Sprinkler Systems with the famous Quartz bulb head. The world's largest sprinkler manu facturer and contractor. GRINNELL COMPANY Branches in all PrincipalCities Executive Offices: Providence, R. I.
