I knew Foxboro was old but didn't realize they were founded in 1908. I
remember working on pneumatic controls from Foxboro that were date coded
in the 1930's. This was in 1972-4 time frame at Anderson-Clayton Foods
in Sherman, TX. This was a vegetable oil refinery that closed in
2001-02 after being sold around 5-6 times since 1984..
