Clevite Corporation At 9820 South Main St.

Recommended Posts

I was reading some old Geophysical and Oil and Gas magazines and a corporation struck my eye.  The company is Clevite Corporation, Texas Division which had their manufacturing and offices located at 9820 South Main Street in the 1950s. 

Anyone recall this campus or company? 

Looks like their old campus was at the corner of South Main & the 610 feeder. Possibly occupied by the present-day Alec Center Shopping Center that houses the restaurant Ruchi's Mexican Grill. 

I would have loved to see the area in the 1950s.  All those small mom & pop/privately owned businesses that once thrived.  Now replaced by national realty companies specializing in class-b retail centers.  Give it another 20-30 years and these small retail centers will be replaced with denser applications such as multifamily housing combined with retail.
