On Present Schedule 271 Every Minute Are Turned Out by Champion Plant.
The factory of the Champion Spark Plug Company, at Toledo, is said to be the largest in the world devoted to making this important article of motor-car equipment.
On its present schedule, the Champion Company is making 120,000 spark plugs each working day, which means that they are being produced at the rate of 271 per minute.
It doesn't mean that Champion plugs are really turned out in a fraction of a second, of course. Actually each plug is several days in process of manufacture. But it does mean that in 1922 the Champion company made more than 35,000,000 complete spark plugs.
