12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 10

Twelve Days of Christmas is both a song and a way to beat the drum about gifts leading up to a memorable day of the year for gift giving.

So, why not 12 days of manufacturing with an upbeat way to beat the drum for the fact that manufacturing is alive in Licking County? Manufacturing has been giving gifts to the Licking County economy for decades.

Follow my @RickPlatt Twitter feed every day at 8:05am EST to learn more about one more manufacturer with a presence in Licking County.

More than advanced manufacturing, these 12 have innovation, product development, and one-of-kind capabilities common among them.

Licking County's manufacturing diversity gets spotlighted too with aluminum, steel, quartz, corrugated, machinery, pine tree extracts, gyroscopes, bus axles, fiberglass, polyurethane, LED lighting, and RF antennas among the products.

Day 10: Quartz-Fuzed Crucibles
Yesterday, I tweeted about Momentive Performance.

Silicon and quartz rods and crucibles consumed in the manufacture of products ranging from semiconductors to solar panels are part of the product mix out of Momentive's Hebron plant.

An expansion is about to open up more capacity for this former GE Quartz plant which doubled its employment in the middle of the Great Recession.

The high-tech story of engineers and technicians working in a clean room environment for unique, highly value-added product is a great Licking County story indeed.
