The purchasing company is owned by David Medin of Minneapolis. Silent Slouw will be * * * operated as a wholly owned subsidiary. Plans for the immediate and long term future were described to The CAPITAL by Everett Junge, the new Silent Sioux manager. "We intend to expand the volume of the plant and at- tempt to make it less dependent on contracts with the Post Office Dept. We are considering making some predicts owned by Metals Engineering," said Junge. ' "There may be some equipment added but basically Silent Sioux will continue doing Firm was founded in 1921 The purchase of Silent Sioux Corp. last week by Metals Engineering Corp. of Minneapolis ended a 51 year history of growth under the direction of the Grotenhouse family. It was founded in 1921 by Mr. J. T. Grotenhouse, who later became chairman of the board The major growth of the company to date was experienced under the direction of the late Mr. Dwight N. Grotenhouse, who was president from 1958 until his death in May of 1969 The elder Mr. Grotenhouse was chairman of the board until his death in July of 1970. Leadership was then provided by Dr. Wayne W. Gutzman, president, and by M/s. Robert Fisher, the former Mrs. Dwight N. Grotenhouse, executive vice-president. J. T. Grotenhouse invented a noiseless oil burner which accounts for the company's name "Silent Sioux." Originally, the Company produced oil burning space heaters in a small building downtown, but soon added a line of equipment for the poultry industry. Later the company moved into a building one block north of the present site. Shortly after World War II this building was destroyed by fire. The present building was completed in 1946. An addition was added in 1947. A new warehouse with 8,000 square feet of floor space was completed in November 1966. This space is needed to manufacture the numerous items which Silent Sioux Corpora, tion makes for agriculture, industry, and the government. These items include steel furniture, sports heaters, space heaters and equipment for poultry and hog raisers. It appears at this point that Silent Sioux will continue, basically, doing the same metal forming as in the past under the new ownership. the same metal forming as they have been doing." Junge went on to explain, "We hope we can bring back onto our payroll people laid off recently because of lack of volume. The men here have been told Metals Engineering has a back order of jobs so we know we can bring some here and thereby increase the labor force." Junge described Metals Engineering as a totally inte- graded engineering type of company with products of a more technical nature than those found in a typical sheet metal plant.
