In the old days people would get their meat directly from the butcher shop and would often buy a large portion of the cow or hog which the shop would store in their lockers for you. When you needed some meat the butcher shop would cut the selection you wanted for the day and deliver it directly to you. But by the mid 1940’s most people had acquired a modern convenience we call a refrigerator to store their meat and other goods. This made the business of having meat storage and delivery pretty much obsolete.

In the fall of 1945, George Michael Barth took on the electrical remodeling of a butcher shop and meat locker business in Acton, Indiana. For payment of his efforts, George accepted a 1938 International panel truck and this was the beginning of a new company called Barth Electric.
