12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 2

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 2:  City Street Lights
Yesterday, I tweeted about Holophane, an Acuity Brands company.
The Port Authority's new Made in Licking County Bridge owes it's name, and its lights, to the products manufactured by Holophane.  The energy-saving lights were assembled in Licking County.

Holophane's Newark plant has a long legacy making lights that serve city streets to retail buildings.  Drive around with a Holophane employee and they'll shock you with the range of places their products end up.

In Granville, one can visit the Holophane HQ and see new products on display.  It sheds light on what designers might see in their future plans.  Pun intended.
