Opening The Door To Ternstedt

5-3/8" x 8-1/4", 36 pages, printed in Black & White with red and blue accent colors.  Item is dated March, 1953 and is very well-illustrated with many historic photographs.  Ternstedt's manufacture of automobile hardware was interrupted by the World War II production program, during which both the Detroit and Trenton plants devoted their entire facilities to wartime production items.  After the war, both the Detroit and Trenton facilities were reconverted and began to produce hardware for “Body by Fisher.”  Anticipating the increased demands of the industry, a new Ternstedt plant was built in Columbus, Ohio in 1946.  With this added facility, Ternstedt was equipped to turn out more hardware than ever before.  This rare Ternstedt booklet is an informational guide for the new workers at the Columbus Plant.  Provides a detailed history of Ternstedt beginning in 1917.  Describes what to expect as an employee at the Columbus Plant.  Many excellent photographs.
