"The time had come for another major move by 1951 and in that year the company took occupation of its new R200,000 factory that had been erected on a three-acre site in the industrial area off Gunners' Circle." They moved from the building built in 1913, a landmark in the Cape Town of its day, in Searle Street. (Shorten, 1963)
