Firestone Annual Convention.
Herewith is an excellent picture of the sales force at the annual Firestone convention. It shows more than 100 of the representatives of the Firestone fire and Rubber Company, taken in front of the company’s new plant in Akron, O. The plant contains the largest tire building in the world, ten acres all under one roof, bringing the total floorspace up to fourteen acres. It is equipped throughout with the newest and most modern machinery for insuring uniformity and perfection in tin finished tire. President Fireston in his annual address to the salesmen and branch managers submitted figures showing last year’s increase in sales was the greatest in the history of the company, and that the new plant will more than treble the present output.
