Max Levenger (c1868-1938)

1938 Obituary [1]

IT is with regret that we have to announce, at the age of seventy, the death of Mr. M. Levenger, manager of the conduit and wiring sundries departments of the General Electric Company, with which he was associated for nearly thirty years.

In 1909 he took control of the wire department and did much to promote its development.

Apart from the work he undertook for his own company in connection with its conduit activities, he was responsible for much in the way of stabilising the interests of the whole of the cable and allied industries in this country. In the Cable Makers' Association he represented the interests of the G.E.C. and the Pirelli-General Cable Works, Ltd.

In 1936 he was made chairman of the Rubber Cable Council, after having previously served in a similar capacity for four years on the Covered Conductors' Association. His chairmanship of the Association of Steel Conduit Manufacturers from 1935-7 did much to consolidate that Association's aims and endeavours, and, in view of the fact that he was largely instrumental in the formation of that body, he took a great pride in his work.

Mr. Levenger leaves a widow and three sons, and to them our sympathy is extended. All his sons are with the G.E.C.

He died at his home at Milford, Surrey, on Thursday, December 15th.
