Libby-Owens Fibre Glass Co. (MP 97.9)

The manufacturing facility in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, has produced fiberglass reinforcements for more than 70 years. Originally built in 1917 as a silk mill, the plant switched to fiberglass production in the 1940s when Owens Corning and the U.S. government partnered to manufacture materials for World War II.

After the war, Owens Corning added the factory to its composites business, expanding production to continuous filament mat (CFM) in 1962. Owens Corning, and later its AGY joint venture with Porcher Industries of France, operated the Huntingdon manufacturing facility until Huntingdon Fiberglass Products took ownership in 2013.

SUSPECT INFO -- Per Matthew Hurst, Libby-Owens became Owens Corning. They received fiberglass pellets via privately-owned covered hoppers:

Supplee-Wills-Jones (MP ???)

Though not listed, for some reason, there was a Supplee creamery at this location. It -- and one at Bedford served via the Huntingdon & Broad Top -- each received and shipped one car daily.

The private cars, of MDT design, looked like a box car but contained two milk tanks. The exterior of the car was noteworthy for having raised lettering. Though only nine cars were reported as of 1946 (below), the fleet grew to 21.
