First Annual Report of the Antigua

Industrial Development Board.


General Review of Board's Work.
The Board was formed in August 1952 and the members met
informally several times in that month for the purpose of arranging
details of organisation. For directional advice a meeting was also
held with His Excellency the Governor. A portion of the. ground
floor of the Administration building was allotted the Board for their
offices. It was agreed that meetings should be held every Tuesday
afternoon at 2 p.m. and as from 9th September, 1952 B. 0. Breton
was appointed Secretary.
The first official meeting of the Board was on 16th September,
1952. The fifty-seventh meeting was held on 22nd December, 1953.
A number of extraordinary meetings and special committee meetings
have also taken place.
Mr. Frank Willock, who was appointed as one of the original
members, resigned from the Board in October 195.3. Mr. Willock had
rendered valuable service and his resignation was accepted with
regret.
Mr. S. J, Hawley was appointed to the Board in November 1952.
The Board's work has been mainly concerned with investigation
of the Island's industrial possibilities. They have been responsible
for development of some projects and for administration of others.
I wish to take this opportunity of thanking all members of, the
Board and the staff for their very willing work given in the service
of the Presidency and also to express appreciation, which I am sure
all members will endorse, for the helpful cooperation which the
Board has received from various Government Departments.
Frequently the Board has received technical advice and assist-
ance from Antigua Sugar Factory. We are most grateful to their
management and executive staff.
Projects with which the Board has been concerned are reported
in detail in the following pages and the Balance sheet for 31st
December, 1953 and profit and loss accounts are appended,

V. C. BIRD,
27th February, 1954. Chairman.









ARROWROOT STARCH
The possibility of growing arrowroot in the South West Section
of the island was investigated. The following facts were established.
(a) About 1600 acres of land, suitable soil type for this
crop, might eventually be planted with arrowroot.
(b) The cultivation of this plant has been carried on in the
district for very many years. Yields were good and a small
peasant industry manufacturing starch with crude equipment
survived until quite recently.
(c) The population of the area understands the crop and
gave evidence of cooperating fully with plans to develop it on a
comparatively large scale.
(d) This south west section, being cut from the rest of the
island by a mountain range, could never expect to be served by
the Sugar Factory's railway. Although it has some of the most
fertile land on the island its situation under present conditions
prevents it from usefully contributing' to the economy of Anti-
gua. For a general crop arrowroot has appeared as the most
suitable to introduce for the advancement of the area.
With the above conclusions reached the prospects for the in-
dustry were explored in details.
For a market survey the following authorities were consulted:
Messrs. Morningstar, Nicol, Inc.
U.S. Vendors of St. Vincent's arrowroot starch
The B.W.I. Trade Commissioner in Montreal, Canada
The B.W.I. Trade Commissioner in London
The Caribbean Commission.
From information gathered it appeared evident that a good mar-
ket could be anticipated for high quality starch produced in an up to
date factory.
Quotations for equipping such a factory have been got from
British, German and West Indian suppliers.
An indicative operating statement compiled with care from such
information as is available o the Ioard, has been colnmpleted. This
based on an initial crop from 500 acres shows promise that the in-
dustry can be operated profitably.

A prospectus, to support a request for a loan to finance this in-
lustry, h's been submitted to Government but it has been decided that










no such request will officially l)e lma(e until it has heen established,
beyond all doubt, that the somewhat large amount of water necessary
for the industry can .1,e ob)tainel.
Considerable theoretical work to answer this question has been
done by the Government Geologist in association with the Assistant
Engineer (Water). Evidence thus obtained indicated that ample
water will be available.
It was impossible for the well drilling programme, prescribed for
practical tests, to be carried out with the resources available on the
island and Government undertook to eng-'age a contractor and drilling
equipment to he brought from Trinidad to advance this project and
other Government water explorations.
This equipment has just arrived in Antigua. Further action by
the Board must stand in abeyance until results are known.
BlR .WING
There is a reason to suppose that a small brewery might profit-
ably he established it Antigua As ihe result ol' some correspondence
andi negotialDtis o(,n the sul)bject the ilndustryW was declared "Pioneer"
l)y (Gover1 nor in Council. However nothing mIlore definite can be
stated on this project at present,

IRuICK!MAKING
The possil)ility of manufacturing building bricks has greatly in-
terested the Board. A wide variety ol' clys can be found in the
island and much work has been done to determine their commercial
value. To some extent general ceramic exploration hais proved use-
ful for measuring possibilities in both pottery anl brlickmnaking but
the two industries diverge very widely in ultimate considerations for
profitable production.
For brickmaking the ideal clay is one that can be moulded, with-
out preparatory treatment, just as it comes from the pit.
Competitive production of bricks depends entirely on two factors
(1) Adequate clay reserves of suitable quality and (2) Abundant
cheap fuel.
Samples of clay thought to be suitable for brickmaking have
been sent to the Mineral Resources Division of the Imperi:al Irstit;ite
in London for examination. (ne sample ias now been declared of
excellent quality. The extent of this clay bed has not yet been de-
termined but indications are that it is vast. Thus one factor appears
very hopeful for fulfillment of our brickmaking operations. Fuel is









the problem not as yet entirely solved. Importation of oil for kiln
firing is not a hopeful idea if it is expected to produce a building
material less expensive than those now available. If an attempt
should be made to use wood, the island's supply would be insufficient
for any worthwhile production of bricks and exhaustion of domestic
fuel supply would certainly result. There remains the possibility of
using bagasse from the Sugar Factory. This has authoritatively
been declared possible but, although exhaustive inquiries have been
made, no precedent has been found for such use of begasse.
The Board's work from this point on must be. entirely explori-
tory. The project will be advanced with the best technical direction
available, but, with no established course to follow, the venture must
be seen as well worth the expense involved in practical experiments.

BONEMEAL (See meat processing)
CONFECTIONERY
With some financial assistance from the Board a small confec-
tionery factory has been established by Mr. R. A. Thompson. Re-
sults are possibly as good as can be expected. About 200 lbs. of
sugar are currently being manufactured per week. Whether or not
the enterprise expands to worthwhile proportions will depend on the
ability of its promoter.

CORNMEAL
The Government owned cornmeal factory on Newgate Street
was made the responsibility of the Board in 1952. Before it could
be hoped to produce a meal acceptable to the local trade the installa-
tion of more machinery and the engagement of a competent operator
appeared essential.
Mr. Clarence Payne, a West Indian of many years American
experience and claiming intimate knowledge of the Cornmeal indus-
try applied to lease the Factory. With agreement providing for
installation of the required equipment and for the eventual produc-
tion of a good quality degermed meal, the lease was granted as from
January 1953.
Drought conditions through the past year prevented the plant-
ing of corn until recent months. This undoubtedly greatly dis-
couraged Mr. Payne who also claimed to have encountered a number
of other set backs. His attitude towards the lIoard was most unsatis-
factory, insisting that he was well able to finance and carry out his
undertakings. lie would not discuss the possibility of receiving any
financial assistance.









In December he left the island, removing such equipment as he
had brought in. He left Mr. J. Oliver Davis with power of At-
torney to act on his behalf during his stated temporary absence from
Antigua. Mr. Davis has discharged Mr. Payne's obligations to the
Board that were at the time outstanding under the agreement of
lease and he is at present operating the factory to process the corn
crop now being harvested. The situation is in the forefront of the
Board's consideration.
COTTON GINNING
As the outcome of action taken by Government prior to the
Board's formation the factory now known as the Central Cotton Gin-
nery, was purchased by the Board with funds provided by loan
authorized for the advancement of the cotton processing industry.
Operational accounts of the Central Cotton Ginnery are append-
ed to this report. (See also oil extraction and refining).
EARTH BUILDING BLOCKS
The possibility of manufacturing building blocks from com-
pressed soil is being investigated. A machine is on the market
which moulds such blocks under tremendous pressure. Samples of
soils are to be sent to England to test their suitability for processing
in this way.
FIsn STORAGE
A request from Mr. A. Simon that the Board should support his
application that pioneer status be granted for his proposed industry
for cold storage of fish was considered. The Board recommended
that some concessions should be granted although it could not be
seen that the industry would qualify in all respects for pioneer status.
By order of Governor in Council Mr. Simon was permitted to
import deep freezing equipment duty free.
A market is now established which is of considerable assistance
in supplying the public with fresh fish.

GARMENT FACTORY
Early in 1953 a special subcommittee of the Board was appoint-
ed to investigate the prospects for a factory in Antigua which would
manufacture shirts, overalls and other cotton, garments. From in-
formation gathered and. from statistics compiled it appeared that
such a factory could be supported by local sales and that eventually
a limited export u~.rket might be expected. Estimates for supply









ing the necessary machinery were secured from the United States-
and contacts have been made with wholesale cotton merchants *in
England.
The industry obviously is one in which private enterprise might
be interested and the Board has offered to consider recommending
that financial assistance be given to a competent operator who would
wish to undertake this venture.
Negotiations are at present being carried on with this end in
view.
MEAT PROCESSING
In August last Mr. W. Wyer discussed with the Secretary the
possibility of establishing a plant on the island for' the manufacture
of various types of sausage', fats and bone meal. Subsequently Mr.
Wyer went to England where he made a close study of modern
methods in the industry. He purchased all the machinery and
equipment for a small, but up to date factory including the necessary
refrigeration units.
Pioneer status has been granted to the industry and Mr. Wyer
has secured for his operations the. small ice plant building at the
former U.S. Base. The machinery has arrived and is now being
installed. It is expected that the factory will be in operation within
the next few weeks.
MINING
Government referred to the Board for an expression of opinion
on an application received for a licence to prospect for barytes in
Antigua. The Board recommended that this licence should be grant-
ed. Work on this project has been proceeding.

OIL EXTRACTION AND REFINING
Execution of the Government plan for public ownership of the
Cotton processing industry in Antigua was delegated to the Board in
1952. Finance would be provided by a loan to be raised for the pur-
pose, as approved by the Secretary of State.
A modern plant for extraction and refining vegetable oils is to
be added to the present cotton ginning equipment and the gin-
ning machinery is also to be brought into line with requirements of
production.
The necessary machinery to fully equip a mill which will pro-
duce edible oils from cotton seed and copra has now been ordered.
About six tons of this machinery has already been delivered in Ani-
tigua and it is expected that the factory will be ready for operation
before the end of this year.








*

It is intended that the new building will be located on a site close
to, but outside of the city. This is to be a steel structure which will be
shipped from England in sections ready for erection. The Ginnery
now located on Newgate Street, will eventually be moved to adjoin
the Oil Mill, It will be possible to extract other vegetable oils with
this plant if, in the future, oil yielding crops are planted.

POTTERY
For many years before the Board's formation the possibility of
developing the pottery industry in Antigua had been a subject for
hopeful speculation. The production of crude peasant pottery has
been carried on in Sea View Farm area for a very long time. The
clays available showed considerable promise and Government became
interested in future prospects for the trade.
In 1951 a young man Malcolm Roberts, was sent to England on
scholarship offered by the British Council to study pottery. He
returned after a year with a degree of knowledge and skill which
-could not possibly be used in, or for the improvement of the existing
island industry. With this promising young student and a Govern-
ment appropriation of 150 the Board endeavoured to take some
steps which might eventually lead to the establishment of an im-
proved pottery industry on the island. An ancient wood fired kiln
was repaired and, with the advice and assistance of the Government
Geologist, many samples of clays were secured and crudely test fired.
A satisfactory future could be seen for the project but impossible to
attain without more highly skilled help and proper finance for inves-
tigation.
In December 1952 Mr. and Mrs. C. Stevenson arrived on the
island with the intention, if possible, of starting a pottery -works.
They both had British diplomas in the craft so if their services could
be retained for advancement of the Board's aspirations considerable
advantage might be gained. They entered the Board's employ. A
suitable building was secured at the former U.S. Base and a start
was made to scientifically advance the project. An oil fired kiln was
imported from Puerto Rico and make shift equipment was installed
in order to get into demonstration production as soon as possible.
By August of last year the articles being produced were suffi-
ciently convincing to justify an application being made for a grant
from C.D. & W. for further exploration work. This was secured in
the amount of $8,000.
Although anticipated standards have not yet been reached, the
factory is now producing marketable ware and there is reason to hope









that the industry is well on the way to becoming self supporting.
Certain machinery ordered from England in clSptember last his not
yet arrived.
Employed at the factory, besides Mr. & Mrs. Stevenson and
Malcolm loberts, are Arnold Mendes and two apprentices learning
the trade.
PAINT
Paint is being manufactured locally by an association known as
the United Caribbean American and African Producer Consumer of
Antigua. A substance mined on the island is used as a filler. The
actual process is known only to the proprietors although the Board
has sent samples of their rawv material to the Imperial Institute for
examination and an expression of opinion. A reply has not yet been
received. It is possible that this Company will seek financial assist-
ance from the Board. .
PRINTING
An application from the Antigua Printery that the Board should
support their application, for exemption from duty on the importa-
tion of linotype nia:cinery was approved.
This concession was granted by Governor-in-Council and the new
equipment is now in operation,
PlSO);T DiVE)iLOPMENT
A plan for opening up the Popeshead coat for resort and resi-
dential settlement was proposed by the Board. This required the
building of a coastal road whviich would run round the north shoulder
of the island from St. John's to connect with tie Hodges Bay RPoad
at Cedar Grove. The area which would tlhs be opened for settle-
ment has been inspected by members of the Board, by members of
the Tourist Committee and bv Government officers. Concensus of
opinion indicates that great possibilities can be seen in this proposed
development which would mike hundreds of wonderful sites availa-
ble for home and resort building.
The project does not coI e within t1he terms of reference of the
Board although it has been given their support in principal.
SALT MAKING
A considerable amount of work in exploring the salt prodiiing
potential of the Colony has been done by the Government Geoliis,,
Mr. Martin Kaye. Of the many areas which he has sure ed, t1e
interest of tbe Board hais focused on lie Go<:t Island Flash in B!'-.
buda. This pond has been inspected by representatives of the Iioard









who were impressed by its great possibilities as a salt producing area.
It has three small colunections with the sea which if walled off would
make it entirely land locked. Plans are being made for carrying out,
this work so that the pond may 1:e under observation to ascertain
whether or not salt will be properly deposited. If the experiment
proves satisfactory then a sluice gate for inlet of sea water will be
built. It has not yet been determined what form of wall will be
most satisfactory for conducting the initial experiment. The salt
producing area should be about I square mile.

SEA \WEED
Sea wieed of commercial value is in the coastal water of these
islands. As a filling occupation it might prove worthwhile harvest-
ing by persons with time on their hands. Investigation of export
markets offers no hope for it to be developed as an industry which
could pay reasonable wages.

SHOEMAKING
Several persons on the island are engaged in making shoes by
hand and iL, is possible that this craft may he developed to 'ive
profitable employment to a few persons. With factory made pro-
ducts to cinmpete against it is nece-sary for the hand made articles
to have some very special features to commend it-strength, unusual
design or price. During Christmas week ladies' shoes made by Mr.
Joel Charles at the tannery in which (Government is interested, were
offered for, sale in the Board's office without any success. It is un-
derstood that Mr. Charles sold all these shoes later at greatly reduced
prices. It is possible that they had the merit of strength but it was
cancelled by untidy finish.
Some conversations have been held with local business men con.
corning the prospects for a shoe factory in Antigua. Such a venture
would require a large amount of capital to establish a plant capable
of producing for a hiighlly competitive market, which would need to
be considerally large than the island can offer. Nevertheless it is
an industry Iwhich could be operated without being handicapped by
the island's limitations in fuel, water and power.

SWEET POT'ATlO PRODUCTS
Mr. A. M. Dlickenson who operates a bakery in Church Street
placed before the I;oard a number of products which h he ;ad derived
from main ,nos. While M r. D)ickensoni's skill and resouceflhiness was
greatly admired, tlhe view w'as taken that his energies would he more
profitably employed .i e,'xamining the potential value of derivatives
of the sweet potato. AMr. Dickenson agreed with this view and went
