0 . . although it's not the 16411- question . . . here's the answer!
BRILLION (there is only one Brillion in the
entire United States) is located in Calumet County
- 321 miles south of Green Bay on a straight
line between Manitowoc and Appleton, and only
two hours north of Milwaukee over route 57.
Although Brillion is only a small town, we are
fortunate in having a substantial number of work-
men who take great pride in what they do, and
who wouldn't trade the pleasant surroundings,
their relationship with fellow workers and close-
ness to management, for all the rice in China.
As for BRILLION IRON WORKS, INC. Here is
a modern, up-to-the-minute production foundry
and manufacturing plant, headed by men who
grew up in big organizations and who are today
setting a lively pace in this industry. Sure we are an
enthusiastic bunch, but justifiably so-note what one
of Wisconsin's really large users of gray iron castings
has to say about BRILLION IRON WORKS. "The
first essential in being a really good foundry is to
establish a reputation for quality and service, and
Brillion has reached this goal in my opinion. They are
to be complimented in the progress they have made."

RATHER; "WHERE ON EARTH IS BRILLION?
The only BRILLION in the World should
be worthy of bearing the title of "CITY".
