In the late 1800's the Booths business steadily expanded in every conceivable article of brass and copper work that could be manufactured including copper utensils, brewery kettles, stills, confectioners' pans, kettles, water systems, wash boilers, and food service equipment for hotels. With his practical knowledge and ability to supervise others, it seemed natural that he would start in business for himself which he did In 1886 with a fellow coppersmith to found the Coulter & Campbell Co. The Booth & Coulter companies merged in 1907 with George Booth as President and William Coulter Sr. As Vice President of the new firm.
By this time William Coulter Sr. S 2 sons, William C. Coulter were fully involved in the family business. The merger rounded out the new firm's field of operations by providing a brass foundry, tinsmithing, machine shop and stamping press operations. With the outbreak of World War 1, the Booth Coulter company set up a munitions department and Canada's first Electroplating plant.
