A large factory recently built for the American Can Co., at Maywood, Ill., involved a number of problems in the design of a manufacturing establishment. The author's work has been confined, for the last twelve years, to the design and equipment of factories for similar purposes and a number of features applicable to similar industries have been evolved which are exemplified in this particular factory and which, it is thought, may be of sufficient general interest to justify a short account of this construction and the designs leading up to it.
