BALLOU B A & CO 61 Peck Founded just after the Civil War by the descendant of an early New England settler, B. A. Ballou is 128 years old and still growing. The history of the company is one of progressive accomplishment marked by many notable milestones along the way. For example, the jewelry industry was once marked by a 66-hour work-week. That was eventually reduced to 60. B.A. Ballou was the first jewelry manufacturer to shorten the work week to 48 hours, when 60 hours were still the rule. Later, it took the lead in abbreviating it to 40 hours. Source - History of B.A. Ballou www.dondemaio.com/me/profiles/ballou.htm
