Local Firm To Combine Merced and Bay City Units In Near Future
Six Employees Affected; Plant To Remain Here, Production Low
For economic reasons, the Merced administration office of the Yosemite Portland Cement corporation will be move to San Francisco "between now and March 15," George A. Fisher, general manager, said today.
Under the present setup the cement company is paying rent upon two offices, Fisher said. The central office is in the Hill building in Merced and a sales office is maintained in the Board of Trade building in San Francisco.
Employees affected by the change are Walter R. Couse, auditor; Charles M. Chapman and H. A. Casey, accountants; R. M. Rodere, purchasing agent, and Mrs. W. E. Sumner and Mrs. Mildred Shipley, stenographers.
The local plant is working on a half capacity schedule, Fisher said. The consumption of cement in California during 1931 was 28 per cent of that of 1930, he said.
