In fact, the Ready-Mix Concrete end Lumber Co. has cement literally running out its doors. A full production schedule keeps the new plant operating continuously producing an average of 300 cubic yards per day. The new structure, located along the Northwestern Railroad tracks just off Diagonal street, began production the first of April. The new mixer allows the Ready-Mix company to deliver cement for any needs, eliminates shortages and furnishes even faster service for all customers within a 25-mile radius of Algona. Four storage bins in the building, three for sand and gravel, one for cement, and a huge silo, make the 56 foot building easily visible. Cement for the plant is hauled in by railroad hopper cars, sand and gravel by truck. These ingredients are hauled to the storage bins by a bucket elevator into a day tank. From the day tank, the silo is filled automatically and the huge cylinder holds 800 barrels or the equivalent of four carloads of cement which comes in directly from the factory. The cement, sand and gravel are weighed separately, and dumped into a collecting hopper, all by machine. Water is metered info the mixture as it is loaded into the truck, where it is then mixed on the way to the job. Three trucks do the hauling. There's no cement shortage at the Ready-Mix Concrete & Lumber Co., in Algona ... if you're thinking of having some concrete poured for any type job, just place your order by calling 166. You'll get speedy delivery with top quality concrete. No Cement Shortage Here! Buildings For Farm and Industrial Use QUONSET STRAN - STEEL MILLER STEEL BUILDING CO.
