TEXTWickes Brothers, an incorporated company with a paid-in capital of one million dollars, is now in the forty-ninth year of its existence, having been established at Saginaw, Michigan in 1860. Its manufacturing plants are located at Saginaw, Mich., Pittsburg, Pa., and Jersey City, New Jersey. Its product of engines, boilers, heaters, pumps, iron working and general machinery, is distributed through its sales offices located in Jersey City, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, Chicago, Saginaw, Denver, Colo., and Birmingham, Ala. H. T. Wickes and W. J. Wickes of Saginaw, Mich., are respectively president and vice-president of the Company. Chester Bertolette, who resides at 215 Ege Avenue, Jersey City, is manager and eastern representative, having charge of all business east of Pittsburg.
The Pittsburg store, situated at 117-119 Fourth Avenue, contains the offices and a fine stock of engines, pumps, machinery. etc., ready for immediate shipment, and the plant at the corner of Fifty-fifth Street and the A. V. Railroad has extensive warehouses fully stocked with engines, boilers, pumps, steel buildings, steel structural work, machine tools, etc. Nothing is too large for the company to handle, and in like manner nothing too small, and buyers always know where they may go to get what they need in these particular lines. The Saginaw plant covers four blocks, and produces boilers, heaters, boiler shop tools, and a full line of saw-mill machinery. It has constantly on hand from 700 to 1,000 boilers, engines and machines. The plant at Saginaw was chosen for its exceptional location, being three hours from Detroit, five hours from Toledo, four hours from Chicago, nineteen hours from St. Louis, fourteen hours from Milwaukee or Cincinnati, seventeen hours from Pittsburg and nine and a-half hours from Buffalo. Wickes Brothers furnishes employment to a large number of Jersey City artisans, and is a valuable asset of the city's commercial capital. Its policy has always been for a better Jersey City, and it is always foremost in any movement that demonstrates civic pride. The firm has not felt the effect of the late financial flurry in any way, but finds its business increasing daily with no sign of even temporary abatement
