Here's a larger picture of the Moreland Truck Company circa 1929.

They certainly were at San Fernando and Alameda. Most of the factory buildings hadn't changed much by the time this 1954 aerial was taken, although the surrounding lots are all now occupied. The main factory building on E Alameda appears to survive at least until 1980, but I don't know what business it housed.
