Greco Canning Company
Mission Valley Canning Company
Almaden Packing was a canning company organized in May 1944 to buy the Greco Canning Company. Apart from the purchase details, Almaden Packing doesn't appear in historical records, suggesting either that the purchase didn't happen, the company disappeared or changed its name, or the company sold out to someone else.
The president of Greco at the time was G.W. Ellis, who said operations would continue after the sale. Organizers of the new company was John A. Oberg, Oakland, Frank Russell, Berkeley, and Terence Coonan, all of San Francisco. In 1940, Oberg lived at 2930 Partridge Ave, Oakland.
The Greco plant was run by the Mission Valley Canning Company by 1947.
