Steel-Framed Beet Sugar Factory at Kidderminster

IN our issue of October we published a description of the two beet sugar factories about to commence operations at Ipswich and Ely. Below we give particulars of a third which has just been erected at Kidderminster for the West Midland Sugar Co., Ltd., of which Lord Weir, Lord Invernairn, J.B. Talbot Crosbie, Esq., Cecil Brinton, Esq., and Mr. Westwood are the directors. Constructed and equipped by Messrs. Duncnn Stewart and Co., Ltd., London Road Ironworks, Glasgow, the new factory is a steel-framed structure, the contract for the supply and erection of the steel framework having been entrusted to Messrs. Braithwaite and Co. (Engineers), Ltd., Crown Bridge Works, West Bromwich. This factory is the second steel-framed beet sugar factory of all-British design and equipment to be erected in Great Britain or the Continent, and is also the second establishment on the programme of the corporation, which also includes four other factories to be built in the near future.
