 Besley-Wells, South Beloit Wisconsin

 

South Beloit signBesley-Wells

Besley-Wells is an AWE facility from May 4-7 1953 so workers are eligible to file for Part B claims.

Besley was a cutting tool manufacturer. A National Lead Company of Ohio (Fernald) proposal indicates Besley was to machine a trial lot of 500 uranium slugs at its Beloit, WI, plant to evaluate whether the use of the Besley facing and radiusing machine could increase production. An NLO document lists Besley-Wells as the recipient of test quantities of radioactive materials.
