Chapter  34 - Eau Claire Industries

Lange Canning Company

(-as transcribed from page 481)

Lange Canning Company, packers of corn, peas and pumpkin.  One of the largest and most important industries in Eau Claire is the Lange Canning Company, incorporated.  They are packers of corn, peas and pumpkin, shipping their output to points all over the United States and turning out an average of three million cans per year.  Two hundred employees are kept busy throughout the busy season.  No house in the city furnishes work for more people or does a more extensive business than this.  Mr. G. J. Lange is the president and manager of this house and its success has been largely due to his unceasing efforts and constant application to the interests of the company.  He allows nothing but first-class goods to leave his hands and the result is a constant accession of patronage.  He is one of the leading business men of the city, lending his assistance to all worthy movements.  Mr. F. A. Lange is the secretary and has taken general charge of the mechanical end of the concern.
