Pittsburgh, Dec. 15. -  Oren A.

Case Cutlery Reaches All Fighting Fronts.

Local Industry Heavily Engaged in Production Of War Goods; Firm Came to City in 1905.

In 1905 J. Russell Case moved the W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company from Little Valley, N. Y., to Bradford, and continued its development to a nationwide business. Since that time there has been a steady increase in volume of business and number of employees augmented by the purchase of a number of smaller cutlery companies.

The factory and office was first located in Bradford in a plant the company erected on Bank street. Forseeing the time when it would outgrow that plant the corporation purchased a tract of land on the north edge of the city just after the last war and developed the residential district at Foster Brook where many employees now live. In 1929 the factory and office was moved to a larger plant erected on this same tract. New buildings have been added to this plant from time to time including a very modern office building completed, in 1941 and a new factory addition recently completed.

Corporation Formed. In January, 1944, W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company formed the Case-Smiley Corporation which acquired Schaaf & Good Company at Fremont, Ohio, where they now manufacture a complete line of shears, scissors and manicure implements. The acquisition of this latter plant will enable W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company, in the post-war period, to furnish their customers with a complete line of cutlery all manufactured in its own plants.

The entire production of the company is, in normal times, distributed directly to more than 5,000 hardware, cutlery and department stores covering every state in the Union and to a limited number of export accounts. The company acknowledges the loyalty and cooperation of these customers in their encouragement to it to produce everything possible for the Armed Forces at the sacrifice of civilian cutlery for their own stock.

From the beginning, quality was stressed as the most important feature of Case knives and today the company's skilled craftsmen, many with over 30 years of service, produce knives acknowledged all over the country as the finest made and Mr. Case and his associates have insisted that this same high standard of quality be maintained for the Armed Forces.

U. S. Has First Call. During the past three years the percentage of military products has increased rapidly and the Armed Forces have at all times first call on the company's entire production facilities. Principal military products made for the various branches of the Army and Navy include short bayonets, trench knives, commando knives, machetes, combat knives, parachute snaps, carbine triggers, straight razors, shears and scissors, electricians knives and utility type pocket knives. Many of these products were designed by the company and approved by the Armed Forces as standard equipment.

Seventy-five employees of the company have entered the Armed Forces during the past four years. Three of these have given their lives on foreign soil.

Officers of the company include J. Russell Case, president and general manager; John O'Kain, vice president; H. W. Barnard, vice president; O. A. Krause, vice president; C. G. Rhoades, treasurer; Miss Clara Baumann, assistant treasurer and F. M. Nash, secretary and attorney. Directors on addition to the above include H. D. Martin and J. Russell Osborne, who is now in the Armed Forces.
