Bio: Noetzel, August H. – New Glove Factory (Feb 1909)


Surnames: Noetzel

----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) 13 May 1909

A. H. Noetzel has received the necessary machines and different utensils for a cotton glove factory, which will start as soon as he can arrange and put them into running order. The plant will be manipulated by himself and wife until the business demands more help. Within a year Mr. Noetzel expects to employ ten or twelve girls in the factory, with an average production of about 4500 pairs per week. At present weekly output will be about 800 pairs. Three different kinds will be made, knit wrist, gauntlet, and plain canvas glove, and also one kind of mitten. F. J. Noetzel of La Crosse has been engaged as traveling sales agent and will commence work as soon as a few sample pairs of gloves have been made for inspection.

August always has been a hustler for the town, as well as for himself, and we hope that everyone in Clark County, when purchasing any of these articles, will demand the home produced product.
