S, P. WEEK FIRM TO START WORK IN MASON CITY New Company Will Manufacture Coffee Dispensing Machine Installation of machinery will start Monday for a new industry in Mason City--the Week Manufacturing company--which will be located at 516 Delaware avenue southeast, S. P. Week, Mason City, owner and inventor, announced Friday. The new company will center its manufacturing a c t i v i t i e s around the Week Coffee Dispenser, a new product invented and produced by Mr. Week. The Mason City inventor explained that production will begin about May Produced in Chicago From 10 to 15 men will be employed at the beginning of operations, Mr. Week said, and at peak production approximately 25 men will be employed. The dispenser has been produced under contract by a Chicago.firm since Jan 10 and now Mr. }Veek has selected Mason City as the site of operations because of its good railroad connections and it is a trading center. The new product is designed as a housewife aid in measuring coffee and keeping it fresh, Mr Week; explained. The coffee is placed m a glass container and fitted snugly upside down in the dispenser. Desires Good Coffee When cof/ee is desired, a knob is pulled and two tablespoons of coffee falls into a drawerlike container which slides over an open hole in the bottom of the dispenser and allows the coffee to pour out. The dispenser is constructed to fit into a bracket fastened on. the wall. A desire lor good coffee aroused Mr. Week's thoughts toward a gadget that would preserve the flavor of coffee after it is opened and also give a uniform measure of hulls and meat of the coffee. After two years of experiment during which time he fashioned 14 different models, the Mason City inventor produced a dispenser which he asserted "Will do the job." Invents Harvester At the present time Mr. Week is experimenting with a hay and bean harvester which will cut green hay and is fashioned similar to a combine. He explained that one machine already was in operation but experiments will be continued lor another year before the product is put on the market. The new company also will handle heavy hardware and electrical supplies and do die casting and sleel die work, Mr. Week said.
