Plank & Company, of Appleton, manufacturing dandy rolls and specializing in artistic watermarking used in papermaking, and one of the leading young business men of this city, was born in Brillion, Wisconsin, December 30, 1881, a son of Ferdinand and Sybilla (Trier) Plank, the former a native of Germany and the latter of Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Ferdinand Plank came to the United States in boyhood, his family locating in Brillion, Calumet county, and in 1883 came to Appleton, where he worked as a miller until becoming foreman of Marshall & Hamel's mill. His wife died in 1904. Joseph J. Plank was the only child of his parents, and his education was secured in St. Joseph's Parochial school and the Ryan High school. After leaving the latter institution he worked for a time for Petti-- bone and Peabody, and then entered the screen plate factory of the Appleton Screen Plate Company in Appleton, continuing with this concern for seven years, and having charge of the dandy roll department. In November, 1908, Mr. Plank established the Joseph J. Plank & Company factory for the manufacture of dandy rolls and watermarking, and the business has grown to such an extent that the firm now employs fifteen specialists and occupies a building 24x84 feet, two stories high, on Clark street, near the Northwestern depot, and the building is to be extended to 300 feet sometime in the future. Mr. Plank has patented a special roll of his own which has many advantages over the common type. The product of the company is sold all over the United States, and the company bears the reputation of being one of the most substantial in their line in the United States. The company intends, in the near future, to go more extensively into the manufacturing of paper mill specialties and will then employ about fifty men. On August 29, 1906, Mr. Plank was united in marriage with Miss Henrietta Kamps, the estimable daughter of Gerhardt and Sophia (Baumann) Kamps, and three children have been born to this union: Gertrude, Sybilla and William Joseph. The Plank family is connected with St. Joseph's Catholic Church, and Mr. Plank is a member of St. Joseph's Society, the Catholic Order of Foresters, the Catholic Knights and the Knights of Columbus.

    Founder
    J.J. Plank Co.
    Appleton, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
    Joseph J. Plank was born in Brillion, Wisconsin, December 30, 1881. He received his high school diploma at Appleton High School. He initially was employed as a designer at Appleton Screen Plate Company. While delivering screen plates to local papermakers, he noted the dandy rolls were arriving from Europe and the East Coast in damaged condition, causing long delays for repairs. He got permission to take a damaged roll home and repaired it successfully.

    With a $500 family loan and an old horse barn, Mr. Plank founded J. J. Plank Company in Appleton, Wisconsin, in 1907. Today, the company is a multi-million dollar firm producing dandy rolls and auxiliary equipment for paper companies worldwide.

    Mr. Plank's company was dedicated to developing and producing dandy rolls, an important mechanical part of a paper machine's wet end. Dandy rolls were designed to improve formation and to provide distinctive watermarks differentiating sheets.

    He received two patents on the design of dandy rolls, both covering their improved construction. He also pioneered the transition of hand-formed watermarks to the electrotype process. The techniques in dandy roll construction significantly improved the durability and life of the rolls. Improved watermark clarity led to a superior production process for making watermarked grades of paper.

    Among his civic contributions, Mr. Plank was commissioner of Appleton Water Works and was instrumental in taking the water utility public. He reorganized the corporation and modernized the facilities to make it safe and reliable.

    Mr. Plank died October 17, 1949. At the time, he was survived by his wife, Henrietta Kamps, and children, Sybelle, Gertrude, Mary, William, Margaret, and Annette.
