There is nothing more pleasing to METRONICS, Inc., than to experience growing pains. Increasing demand for the fine tools and equipment manufactured by METRONICS has caused the firm to add another addition. METRONICS has expanded greatly since its start in 1945 by the late C. L. Livingston. The concern was then the Livingston Tool Company. In 1950, O. B. Harmes joined Mr. Livingston and the firm became a partnership. Harmes became the sole owner in 1957 and in 1964 changed the name to METRONICS. This ever-expanding manufacturer produces tools and equipment used in the erection and maintaining of food equipment and conveying systems. It is also associated with the Britt-Tech Corporation in Britt, Iowa. There are presently 30 employees at METRONICS and the planned expansion of the company adds to the bright future of Algona industry. METRONICS, Inc. +»»»»•
