Coca Cola Plant Changes Hands
Messrs. Ferrell Of Chattanooga Buy Coca Cola Plant
From F. A. Wright This Week
Messrs. T. S. Ferrell and Morgan Ferrell of Chattanooga, Tenn., have purchased the Coca Cola Bottling Plant of the C. E. Wright Ice Company from F. A. Wright, and assumed control of the plant.
Mr. Morgan Ferrell, who will manage the local plant, is one of the most experienced Coca Cola bottling men in the country, having for a number of years been connected with the business in many of the larger cities.
The plant will be continued in operation under the style of Coca Cola Bottling Works of Greenwood, with Mr. Morgan Ferrell as vice-president and general manager. The new company will supply the same territory and will at an early date erect a building at a new location to house the plant.
