Marion County, IA Biographies





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.
