England, Germany and America are the only other countries in the world, which produce the material - rip extended metal (for reinforcing) - he claims. He is Mr Joseph Raspotnik (left) a 51- year- old mechanical Engineer who came to Australia in February1956, from his home in Villach, Leiningengasse 14, an industrial town in Corintnia. Mr Raspotnik says demand for his new metal has increased. So much so that he has already brought his brother-in-law, Mr Franz Felfer (right), to Australia to work at the plant. July 1957
