Apex Employees in the 1940s
As the United States celebrates another Labor Day, today’s post takes a look back at employees of the Apex Manufacturing Company in Sandusky in the 1940s. All the pictures are from the Gerald I. Cockerill Collection at the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center.
Apex and its predecessor Holland Rieger made appliances, but during World War II, the factory shifted to manufacturing materials needed for the war effort. Below is a picture from the balance operation of Jack and Heintz Starters.
These women were working in the Pesco armature and field department at Apex.
The assembly department for Bendix starters can be seen in the next photo.
The final picture was taken on the Bendix starter armature line.
