"We simply fell it would bo a welcome contribution lo the communily if we went ahead and made these improvements, and in general put our plant on a par with the best in Iowa as far as cleanliness is concerned", said Jess Manor, manager of the rendering plant. "And now, as a result, we are able to do our processing work in about half the lime it took before", he added. ——»^« One important improvement, at least as far as local citizens are concerned, has been Ihe installation of new condensers for the removal of offensive odors. In addition, the plant has installed a new skinning floor, has erected a new "concrete truck ramp at the main building, and whal is quite important, has rebuilt and speeded up the cookers which process the raw materials. All of this has been done over the past eight or ten months. For many years, farmers in Kossuth County and adjacent areas hare been receiving dead-animal removal service from Ihe Algona Rendering Co. This service, now improved by the replacement of three old, worn-out trucks with three new ones, converts material which is a detrimenl lo the farmer and a threat lo human health, into useful products. Three products are produced by the rendering company: Inedible grease which is sold lo soap manufacturers and others; Tankage, or meal scrape, sold to feed companies and farmers; Hides and skins, which are shipped to tanners for conversion into leather products. v For J. W. Manor, local manager, this Fall is a sort of "anniversary", as well as signaling completion of the modernization program. It is the end of his tenth year with the parent company. He worked in the home office, Des Moines, for four years, then traveled for the company, and came fo Algona in early 1954. Workmen at the rendering plant now are Joe Fosnaugh, plant foreman, R. B. Lamb, J. W. Walker, S. R. Walker, and Jack Gellman. Drivers in Ihis area are John Schimmel, Jr., Don Reimers, Carroll Reimers, Bob Wilson and Harry Blome. To emphasize the scale on which Ihe local firm works, the olanl here services ap area' including Algona, Humboldl, West Bend, Irvington," Bode, Livermore, Eslherville, Cylinder, Lakota, Fenton and Sexton. To enable the farmer lo gel the best possible service, the Algona Rendering Co. requests that they be called immedialsly when they are needed so lhal trucks can be dispatched on daily planned roules.
