Black and white photograph showing Hart & Cooley employees standing outside the Holland factory.  Names of individuals picture are at the bottom of the photo.
August Landwehr, a Holland, MI businessman and resident, arranged in 1924 for Hart & Cooley to move to Holland, MI. The thought behind this was for Hart & Cooley to supply the warm air registers for Landwehr's Holland Furnace Co, furnaces.

During the World War 2 Hart & Cooley shifted production from registers to 60mm mortar-shell casings

In 1986 Hart & Cooley became part of Chicago-based Eagle Industries. In 1990 Hart and Colley workers went on strike, which led to a decline in sales and, eventually, a departure of Hart and Cooley from Holland, MI.
