Sale of the properties of the Jo-Mar Dairies company was announced today. The transaction was handled through R. L. Tudor, who has been in charge of the properties, and was completed in Chicago, the new owners taking charge as of October 1.
George J. Miller, who has been general manager of the company will continue in that capacity, and will be the president of the board of directors. Associated with him in the active management of the concern will be Everett A. Langel, formerly of Kansas City, who has been engaged in the dairy business for a number of years, and will be secretary and treasurer of the new company. These two men, with J. J. Vanier, of Salina, and Charles Newman, of the Protected Milk company, of Kansas City, Mo., and a fifth man, yet to be selected, will comprise the board of directors.
Approximately $500,000 in property is involved in the deal, and officers state that every share of outstanding stock is owned by directors or employees of the company. Plants are located at Salina, Newton, Junction City, Pratt and Liberal, with a distribution plant at Wichita.
Ice cream is made in all the plants, while butter is manufactured at Salina, Junction City and Newton and milk is sold in Salina, Newton and Pratt. Salina will continue to be the general headquarters of the company, which is a Kansas corporation. Mr. Langel, who has been here for some time completing the details of the purchase, will make Salina his home.
