Meindl did indicate that expansion of the process is possible and the plant, over a period of years, could double that employment figure. The company plans to use only one- half of the existing space in the plant, and utilization of the remaining 24,000 sq. ft. has not been determined. Meindl indicated that the process is a new venture for Reynolds in that it will purify the aluminum oxide from the existing 99 percent to 99.4 percent. "We will have to purify the city water we will use in the process," Meindi said "And the liquid we eventually put into the city sower system will actually be purer than the city tap water." The further purification of the product, even Just a few tenths of a percent, greatly increases the products uses and will make it superior over existing products with simfllar func- tions presently on the market, Meindl said. Before ceasing operation in the third quarter of 1980 the Malakoff plant produced sheet metal products and the Reynolds "Vega" line of exportable, prefabricated homes. Garner said that at the plants' peak period the company employed some 30 hourly and eight salaried people. The plant is located on Highway 31, west in Malakoff on eight acres of land.
