He first learned about moving factories several years ago when firm moved to a new building at its Chariton, Iowa, plant. But it still doesn't tome any' easier; it's still a "hunt and peck" system. "This is enough. I don't want to try it again," Gross lamented. The company hired an industrial moving firm to relocate its larger equipment. such as cloth cutting and pressing machines, and a printing press. The rest of the smaMer equipment, individual sewing machines and "a jillion other things that go with them," have been and are being moved by Gross personnel. The firm also hired about 12 high school boys to help with some of the moving. AT THIS time almost all of the company's 130 em­ ployes have set up operation at the new plant. Gross said production was closed down for two days during the move and ran slower than usual on some of the other days. A "For Sale" sign has already been put up in the window of the 5-story Ferris Street plant, he said. The new plant is located at West Main Street and Pickard Road and was financed through municipal industrial revenue bonds — the first such bonds in Galesburg and the first in an Illinois home rule city. For the most part, the bonds were bought locally. "We've got so many owners around this town we'll have to have an open house for them to see it," Gross chuckled.
