Place of Origin

Maker Bloomfield Industries

Maker Details In 1933, Samuel Bloomfield started in the business of manufacturing display and pie cases in a 2,000 square foot plant in Chicago. Between 1939 and 1941, rapid business growth allowed them to expand the business to a 55,000 sq. ft. building. At this time, the Bloomfields became very active in government business and, with the onset of World War II, did a sizable business with government contract offices.
