Administrative history

The Standard Ideal Company was establised about 1903 in Port Hope by Hiram T. Bush (d.1927). The company first made soil pipe and pipe fittings. By 1910 the Canadian Sanitary Manufacuring Company of Montreal bought Standard Ideal Co. in Port Hope and carried on the business of making stoves, ranges, furnaces, and iron and brass goods. The Standard Ideal Company changed its name to Port Hope Sanitary Manufacturing Company, Ltd. in Aug 1916. During the First World War the Port Hope Sanitary Manufacturing Company changed production from household items to making acid proof enamel ware, selling to the Military Hospitals Commission of Canada in Trenton, to USA and Allied Chemicals in Port Hope (1918). The Company was later bought out by Crane Company, which closed production in Port Hope in 1967.
