Administrative history

The S.F & W.E Roop Sash and Door Company was established in 1890 at Middleton, Nova Scotia by Samuel Roop and his son Warren. It was the first woodworking factory at Middleton and employed twenty men to saw logs, kiln-dry lumber, and manufacture windows and doors. By 1897, the focus of the company had changed to the manufacturing of mouldings, boxes and cases, and was renamed Middleton Box Factory. In 1898, the factory burned down, and the Roop's formed a new company with G.E Hutchinson named Roop & Hutchinson. It was later renamed Middleton Woodworking Company Ltd. The company built a large factory with a boiler house and saw mill. However, upon its completion, the factory was immediately sold to A.W Amos of Yarmouth who established his own woodworking company.
