THEMAAngaben zum Unternehmen
TEXTThe works of this company is situated on the corner of Leavenworth, and was established by E. P. Wilson and P. Estes in 1858. These gentlemen commenced with a small iron lathe, a wood lathe, and a drill, and claim to have made the first steam engine and to have cast the first stove in Kansas. They now manufacture Estes' patent steam engines, which have the advantages of the Corliss engine, Tremain's balance valve, flour and quartz mill machinery, and have a special trade for the gold machinery of Colorado and Montana, iron frame saw-mills, water-wheels, pumps, architectural iron, and generalmachinery, besides stoves and hollowware. Their works occupies an area of 250 by 300 feet, and includes a machine foundry, stove foundry, machine shop, millstone filling room, forge with seven fires, and two store-houses. The works employs 200 hands, with a pay-roll of 10,000 monthly, and uses forty horse-power to drive the machinery, which consists of nine lathes, three planers, three drill presses, one punch, one shearer, one screw cutter, and two cupolas. The capital is 200,000 with a product of from 400,000 to 450,000, and a consumption of 2,000 tons of iron. They have lately built a fifty horse-power steam engine for the St. Joseph Flouring Mill, and built the large engines for the Leavenworth coal mines, besides saw-mills for Salt Lake City, and the architectural iron work for the Leavenworth courthouse. The success of this company shows what enterprise and energy may accomplish in our far Western States. - Ortsangabe hier: "Leavenworth City"
