SUNSHINE HARVESTER WORKS.
For some time past it has been rumoured
that Mr. H. V . McKay has contemplated
removing his Sunshine Harvester Works to Braybrook. When approached in reference
to the matter, Mr. McKay said he was not then prepared to speak definitely; but on Saturday evening, when the employes were assembled at a social gathering, he stated that as soon as possible the plant would be removed to Braybrook, where in future the Sunshine harvesters would be manufac- tured. As the works employ over 300 men, their removal from this city is regarded locally with some concern. It is understood that by the removal Mr. McKay hopes to save carriage from Melbourne on coal, and certain raw material, while the same car- riage on the finished article intended for export will also be saved Mr. McKay is also hopeful that as Braybrook is a shire, the provisions of the Factories Act may not be applied so rigorously as in Ballarat.
