"In later years, the Portland Company made parts for rotary-welding the insides of pipes for the nuclear power plants along with neutron reactor shells, such as the one shown here. The company also made many types of plastic-forming and extruding machinery for bottles and other plastic products." --Fletcher, David H. "The Portland Company 1846-1982." Charleston, S.C.: Arcadia Pub., 2002. 128.
