Transocean Air Lines        1946 - 1960
Transocean Air Lines - The First Aviation Conglomerate
The Industrial Development Division

The Industrial Development Division (under the direction of S. McKee Mhoon), had a fully
equipped plant for the manufacture of both aviation and non-aviation related projects. They
produced aircraft components for Navy fighters, chairs, and even developed two types of small
refrigerators.  One of these refrigerators was round and designed for use in doctors' offices and
clinics, where it was necessary to store serums, vaccines, and antibiotics in small vials and
containers.  It had a rotating shelf on a central spindle-rather like a Lazy Susan. The second
refrigerator was a junior-sized box to sell for use in small apartments or motels where space
was limited.
