HISTORY of Delphos:
The history began in 1898 when the business was called the Delphos Can Company. Henry Leilich, one of the founders of the plant, came to Delphos from Germany in 1881. The patented non-overflow pump can was its basic product. In the first few decades of the 1900s, galvanizing kettles were installed and the production of roofing and rain spouting began. Oil and gasoline cans were also made from galvanized steel. Beginning in the 1930s, New Delphos also produced poultry and hog feeding equipment. The company closed its doors on Oct. 16, 1990.
