Second generation owner Jim Breazeale’s first summer job was making US Government GI yellow bar soap in the years following the Korean War. In those days they would make soap in kettles and pour it into 4’x5’x1′ frames which held 1,000 pounds each. The huge blocks would cool for three days and were then run through metal wires to cut it into 8oz and 16oz bars that were packed in wood cases to ship overseas.
Bar soap manufacturing has gotten a lot faster and more efficient since then. Today we use high speed soap extrusion lines and an array of packaging equipment to produce a large variety of bars for branded products companies, retailers, and hotels.
