producing two a month and employed 240 men. By 1852, 500 engines had been produced; by 1861, 1,000; and
by 1868, 2,000. At that point, the company employed between 1,600-1,700 men, and was one of the very
largest machine works in the nation. In 1906 Baldwin began construction of a large auxiliary plant in

transferred to the Eddystone Plant.
