THE PELLA OVERALL COMPANY.
One of the most prosperous industrial concerns of Pella is the Pella Overall Company, which in the seven years
of its existence has grown rapidly and steadily. It was organized in September, 1907, and now manufactures several
thousand dozen garments per year and employs thirty three people regularly. Its present officers are: H. J. Vanden
Berg, Jr., president; Y. T. Van Niewaal, vice president; J. D. Gaass, secretary and treasurer; and J. W. Boyd,
manager; and its directorate is composed of the following men: Y. T. Van Niewaal, H. D. Wormhoudt, J. P. Klein,
James G. Vander Pole, H. J. Vanden Berg, Jr., A. T. Klein, A. Waechter, G. G. Gaass and H. S. Keables. It manufactures
the Dutch brand of overalls, coats and pants and sells its product over Iowa, Missouri and South Dakota, although
its brand is most widely known in this state. Two traveling salesmen are upon the road constantly and its goods
are being introduced in new territory. As the garments are hygienically made, are of high quality and will stand
an unusual amount of hard wear, when trade is once secured it is permanent. The factory building is twenty five
by seventy five feet in dimensions and the Pella Overall Company occupies all three floors. Its equipment is modern
and adequate and its present output is several thousand dozen garments annually. Its stock is a profitable investment,
and the company is also of service to the entire community, as it contributes in no small degree to the prosperity
of the city and as its goods advertise the city over a constantly increasing territory.
