During the year 1903, Portland cement was made in Fenton, Michigan, by the Egyptian Portland Cement Co. During the year the company had employed on an average of 85 men, this being the second year they have been in operation. Marl is used as a basis, using about 20 per cent clay. The company had increased their annual output to a great extent over that of their first year and yet they expect to install additional machinery later. About 70 per cent of the entire product of this plant was sold in Michigan. The company has marl holdings sufficient to continue in operation for one hundred and fifty years. I. F. Williams, of Detroit, Michigan, was the General Manager.
