Can a small firm In a small city tangle with the giants of ihdustty — a*d com* up the winner? Many tmalle? manufaclufets believe it can't be done, but a positive answer to the question was given here last week, when the Livingston Tool Co., was awarded an exclusive contract for production of special tool* fot a Chicago subsidiary of the giant United States Steel Corporation. The tool, designed and perfected by Livingston TooL is a tension control device to be attached io a product manufactured by Gerrard Steel Strapping Division of U. S. Steel, and was developed over a two year period by the Algona firm in competition with a number of other machine tool makers — all of them considerably larger than Livingston Tool. Needless to say, the local manufacturing firm's staff is a mighty happy set of people, for though the new tools can be produced under present facilities it is expected that a substantial increase in volume will result from manufacture of the Gerrard device. Patents are being applied for by Livingston on the tool, and the local firm's entire production will be taken by the U. S. Steel subsidiary.
