The article reports that Cherokee announced the success of a new, complete turn-key gin plant. When it was intended to replace old gin plant with a new, high capacity facility, Roy Owens Construction Company and Cherokee to rise to the challenge. Installing complete gin plants is nothing new to the folks on this team, but the big difference in this gin plant lies in the fact that it is fitted with Cherokee-designed and Cherokee-manufactured equipment from beginning to end. This required the introduction of several new machines to the Cherokee line-up, including the Cherokee Majestic Feeder and Gin Stand, the Cherokee Regal Lint Cleaner, and the Cherokee No-Door Elite Baling Press. Along with the expanded equipment line, Cherokee introduced a whole new generation of user friendly control systems to the ginning industry.
