Leland - Soda Syphons and Cream Whippers

Leland Industries was established in July, 1964 by Mr George A Stanford and Mr Carl H Sollmann. Their principle business was to manufacture soda syphons and cream whippers for home use and purchase and distribute small high pressure gas filled cylinders to the aerospace industry and military.

Before starting Leland, they were already deep in the markets working the trade show circuit for Kidde Manufacturing in Bloomfield. As the consumer markets were growing post war, George Stanford finished his military service in the US Air Force Reserve. He was a master of public relations. Something the military loved to do was to show off their planes. Photo shoots were common place for him and he knew what people wanted to see. Circa 1963. George Stanford (right) knew the value of long term relationships and always made everyone feel welcome and important. He his standing with Vaughn Alexander, then President of WT Grant (middle).
