1939 and 1960 was the rapid growth of Altona. Not only was Altona the administrative and co-operative center of the municipality by the 1940's, but with the construction of the Co-op Vegetable Oils Plant and the expansion of D. W. Friesen and Sons, it also became the business and industrial center of the municipality.
