New plant for Dallman Plastics
A new plant is under construction for Dallman Plastics of Unity in an other location in the village.
The firm is building the new plant as part of its plans to expand its present operations. The plant, currently employing five to six persons, manufactures holding tanks, shower stalls fenders and roofs for the recreational vehicle industry. It has been engaged in the business for 15 years. The new plant will have two or three times the present output capacity, according to its new owner, Dennis Dallmann. A new product will also be built. The product is a snow bowl, as yet unnamed, to be pulled behind a snowmobile or a boat. It will hold two or three individuals.
The expanding operations may double the number of employees hired by Dallmann. Operations will be transferred to the new plant about the middle of January.
A benefit dance for Dallmann has been scheduled by the Unity commercial club for Saturday, January 10. Tickets are now on sale.
The new Dallmann Plastics plant will be located in the southwest corner of the village. The first was previously located in the old Fischer Hardware building on Highway 13.

Council offers $90,000 for 50 industrial acres The Abbotsford City Council has offered Pat Galvin $1,800 an acre for a 50-acre parcel of industrial land southeast of East Town Mall, and Galvin has 30 days to respond.
The offer was approved Monday night after a closed session discussion on the industrial land purchase, which was first brought up at the Dec. 4 council meeting.
Although the conditions imposed by the council do not exactly match those requested by Galvin last week, Mayor Duane Grube said he had high hopes that Galvin would endorse the deal.
If he does, the city will hand over the $90,000 in a lump sum. The 1990 budget includes $40,000 for industrial development, and remaining $50,000 could come from either shifting budgeted funds or borrowing.
