Allied Chemical Back in Picture for Federal Plant
IET, pg. 3 Tuesday, Dec. 9, 1941
The Tribune was in communication with Congressman Thomas A. Jenkins at Washington this afternoon and learned that the Allied Chemical Company, which operates the local Solvay plant is “back in the picture” in the matter of the construction of the 20 million dollar ammonia plant at South Point. While I can’t say definitely I’m inclined to believe that the contract will be given to Allied Chemical today,” Mr. Jenkins said. :However, I’ve been expecting the contract to be issued momentarily for a week or more so I may be wrong in suspecting that the matter will be taken care of toady.”
It is known that the present US-Japanese situation has placed a new light on maters and undoubtedly the matter will now be rushed through.
