On Saturday the C. B. Hannay Co. held an open house to celebrate 50 years of being in the business of making reels. Many area and out-of-town people took advantage of this opportunity to see first hand what goes on at the Hannay Plant. The visitors were taken on a guided tour of the plant which included the buildings where the parts are made, reels assembled, painted, crated for shipment and stored.. They also saw the warehouse, the garage, the advertising department, the office with various types of modern business machines and much, much more.

In 1933, the founder of the company, Clifford B. Hannay built a reel with the necessary fluid connectors and rewind crank for handling hose for liquid fuel. It proved to be a success and today the Hannay Co. manufactures reels that will handle any liquid or gas. These reek are equipped with manual or power rewind mechanisms and come in many types and sizes with various specifications. They are sold all over the U.S. in many parts of Canada, Central and South America. Westerlo is proud of the C. B. Hannay Co. as it is the leading manufacturer of reels for all types of hose and cable and gives employment to well over 100 men and several women who make up the office staff. Congratulations and may the Hannay Co. continue making for the next 50 years.
