Abbotsford Men Buy Block Plant at Colby

Carl Johnson, Leo Hilber and Tony Switlick of Abbotsford purchased the Colby Builders’ and Supply Co. block plant at Colby and will operate it as the Johnson Block Supply Co.

New machinery is being installed for the making of high grade concrete and cinder blocks and the new owners hope to be in full production by May 1. All kinds of cement, Pittsburg glass blocks, paint and other materials needed in building basements and walls will be sold.

The usual silo and other construction work done will be carried on by the Johnson Silo and Construction Co. at Abbotsford, Wisconsin.
