From the original description: The manufacture of worsted braids is a new industry in our country, which was begun about fifteen years ago. Previous to that time, worsted braids, used in the United States, were all imported, at an, annual cost, of between two and three million dollars. The business of manufacturing worsted braids was begun in 1861, by D. Goff and Son, in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. One, or two other, parties began the manufacture at about the same time. For various reasons, such as inexperience in the business, want of proper machinery, and heavy importations of goods under a low tariff, they all lost money in the experiment. Messrs. Goff and Son persevered under the weight of heavy losses and discouragements, until the tariff of 1867 gave them fresh courage. They were then making better goods than any that were imported or manufactured in our country, and their business began to be remunerative. Now they are on the full tide of success, and they maintain the reputation of making better goods than were ever imported, while they supply consumers at twenty per cent. less than they formerly paid for the imported articles. The establishment of D. Goff and Son Consists of a Mill 200 feet in length, 54 feet in width, and five stories in height, which is lighted by gas, heated by steam, thoroughly ventilated, and furnished with the best of machinery. A turbine water-wheel of 275 horse-power, drives the machinery and theirs is the last water privilege on the Blackstone river which empties into Narragansett bay a few miles below. Tide-water flows up to their mill. About 150 persons are employed in this worsted braid manufactory, whose average production is about 100,000 yards a day, of alpaca skirt braid. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
