History:

  • "Prism Companies Merged. — The announcement has been made of the consolidation into one corporation of the business, interests, products and goodwill of the American 3-Way Prism Co., Cicero, Ill., and the American Luxfer Prism Co., New York. Since January 1, 1920, these two companies, which have dominated the field in the manufacture and sale of prism transoms, sidewalk lights and skylights, are doing business under the name of the American 3 Way-Luxfer Prism Co. This opens to the trade all the superior products of both these companies at a decided economy, because of the saving in overhead and operating cost. Directors and officers of the American 3-Way Prism Company will manage the new company." —National Glass Budget: Weekly Review of the American Glass Industry, Volume 35, February 7, 1920
