TEXTThese works are situated at the east end of Glasgow. They were at first employed chiefly in the manufacture of machinery for calico dyeing, printing, and bleaching; but soon the making of sugar machinery was begun, which now constitutes a large part of the output. In addition to these are made engines and boilers of all kinds and sizes for land use. The manufacture of electric lighting machinery has also recently been taken up. Within the last three years the works have been greatly enlarged and re-arranged, and now cover an extensive area. The various departments comprise erecting, machine, and boiler shops, coppersmiths', brass-founders', iron-founders', and sheet-iron workers' shops.
