Roberts Filter Manufacturing Company’s Government Contracts
The Roberts Filter Manufacturing Company has recently been given the contract in Washington for the erection of the water works system and filtration plant in connection with the cantonment for San Juan, Porto Rico. This brings to mind the special effort this company has made to devote their energies entirely to governmental work since the war activities commenced, and the plants which they have already constructed, and are under construction, make a notable record of effort and achievement. Some of the plants referred to are those of Camp Meade, Newport News, Hog Island and the Annapolis Academy. The improvements in connection with the San Juan water works necessitated by the cantonment involves an expenditure of about $300,000.
