Synopsis

AN American firm of manufacturers
made an extended investigation with
a view to determining the best location
for a Canadian branch plant. For
their estimate they took one thousand
dollars worth of product as the unit,
and on that basis they prepared an exhaustive state-
ment covering the leading industrial centres of this
Province. This statement showed cost of power;
cost of gas for forging; cost of site; the freight rate on
steel from Pittsburg: freight rates on coal; taxes;
water charges; switching charges; railway and water
shipping facilities. The production costs in Welland
were found to be much less than in any other in-
dustrial city in Ontario. In many places costs were
found to be fifty per cent, greater than in Welland.
In three cases it was found to be over sixty per cent,
greater. In one case it was found to be over one
hundred per cent, greater.
