Paul Wenger Company.


AMUCH-MULTIPLIED merchant marine under United States registry will carry- American overseas commerce to many new parts, and secure for it many hitherto uncon- quered markets.

Among those whose preparations are especially complete to meet present and future demands of expanding trade in important lines is the house of Paul Wenger Company, well known metals and ores house, which has recently added a department for chemicals, drugs, colors and similar commodities.

Mr. Paul Wenger established the business several years ago as an individual venture and built it up to a place of importance in the trade in metals and ores. Steadily the business expanded to cover every department of the ore and metal business. Relations with miners and producers have been firmly established, and sales are made to mills and dealers in domestic trade, while imports and exports are handled in a trade that has grown to be practically world-wide, with representatives and correspondents in London, Australia, South Africa, South America, China, and japan.

Recently the business was removed to new and spacious headquarters in the building at 56 and 58 Liberty Street and 35 Nassau Street, the business being now carried on under the registered name of Paul Wenger Company. This firm not only does a greatly enlarged and broadened business in all metals and commercial ores, but also in its recently added chemical department is building up a wide trade, domestic and overseas.

The facilities and connections possessed by the firm, its direct relations with the chief sources of supply and lines of distribution enable the Paul Wenger Company to meet the demands of mills, factories and the trade for metals of practically every kind, such as aluminum in all its forms (sheets, ingot, rod, wire, etc.) antimony, copper (ingot, sheet, rod, wire, etc.) bismuth, brass in-gots, manganese copper, phosphor bronze, man-ganese copper, phosphor copper (5, 10, and 15 per cent grades), ferro-manganese, manganese metal, manganese oxide ferro alloys (ferro- chrome, ferro - manganese, ferro - molybdenum, ferro-uranium, ferro-titanium, ferro-tungsten) nickel, lead, antimonial lead, solder, babbitt, spelter (prime western, intermediate, and high- grade) tin (Straits, Banca, Chinese, and English phosphor-tin, tin-plates, zinc, etc.

The firm handles large consignments, export or import, and its excellent banking connections enable the firm to handle the business in the most efficient manner. Besides metal, they are large handlers of ores, including antimony, bauxite, chrome, copper, copper oxide, lead, manganese, magnesite, molybdenum, titanium, tungsten and vanadium ores, and they also handle crucibles.

In the chemical department the firm, in view of the changing conditions of the chemical market and the large and rapid increase and expansion of the American chemical industry, has been busily engaged in getting in touch with representative houses in all parts of the globe outside of the Central Powers and Russia. Its policy is to export American products in chemicals, drugs, colors, oils, dyes, etc., all over the world, and to import all such articles as America lacks or has little of, such as tanning extracts, potashes, logwoods, etc., not manufactured in the United States. The main idea is to supplant German goods with American products in those countries. Relations with manufacturers in various lines enable the firm to meet every anticipated demand in that line, and they also propose to inaugurate z manufacturing department and to go into the raising of castor beans, to secure soda deposits in the West and otherwise to put themselves in close touch with supply sources. They are also sole agents of the James F. Duffy Corporation, manufacturers of Duffy's Pure Oil Grease, an unsurpassed lubricant for machinery.

The list of products handled include standard drugs, all heavy chemicals and acids used in the manufacture of paper, glass, leather, textiles, soaps, soda ash, caustic soda, sulphate of copper, etc., naval stores, oils, paints, glass, coal-tar dyes and intermediates, fertilizers (nitrogenous, am- moniates, pyrites, phosphates, potash salts, etc.), aniline dyes, dye bases and dyewoods. In all its branches the house is efficient, progressive and equipped for trade leadership.
