Equipment, which was used to produce concrete blocks, was affixed to the plant floor by removable bolts. Following the holders of mortgages taking possession following foreclosure, the purchaser successfully claimed that they had converted the equipment because it retained its chattel nature. Taggart JA stated (at 714-15):
[R]elative to its size the degree of annexation was not great. While some time and effort would be required it would be quite feasible to remove the component parts of the manufacturing equipment and install them in another building. There was, however, a sufficient degree of annexation to satisfy the second principle referred to…in Stack v. T. Eaton Co… .
As to the object of the annexation…the evidence shows that such annexation as there was was for the better use of the equipment to manufacture concrete blocks and not for the better use of the realty.
