1908: HAMILTON TOWNSHIP'S THERMOID COMPANY

Thermoid was one of the most viable manufacturing companies extant back in the first half of the 20th century. Many local citizens found gainful employment at the company. During WWII, Thermoid was an integral part of the U.S. Government's list of critical war suppliers. The engraving above shows the rear of the complex adjacent to the mainline railroad tracks; a location which was a great advantage to the Thermoid company.

I worked at Thermoid for 5 months.Ray Danbury's grandfather (God bless him) used his influence to get me hired. I worked in the brake lining inspection dept. but I didn't inspect. That was done by about 40 women who filled a box with inspected lining and when it was full I carried it to the pallet.It help me make the payments on MY 49 Olds.I left when I enlisted in Oct 51. The workers at Thermoid, especially the ladies were the greatest.Memories of old Trenton.
