COMPANY OFFERS MACHINERY FREE TO PRESERVATIONISTS

By Staff

Steam turbines, blowers and compressors from the Elizabeth-town
Gas Company, Elizabeth, N.J., are offered free to organizations or
individuals who are interested in preserving them.

The offer was made known to Stemgas Publishing Co. by Michael J.
Behan, Administrative Assistant, Public & Governmental
Relations, for the firm.

He emphasized that the company is not seeking to sell the
pieces, and does not wish to enter negotiations with brokers. If
you are interested, and think you can handle and haul away any or
all of the machines, call Mr. Behan and tell him so.

His telephone number is (201) 289-5000, Ext. 716. His business
address is One Elizabethtown T Plaza, Elizabeth, N. J. 07207.

We are very pleased that he would rely on Stemgas to publicize
this opportunity, and hope that every item will be given a good new
home.
