12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 3

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 3: Prototype Plastic Products
Yesterday, I tweeted about Bayer MaterialScience.
The Newark Compounding Plant for Bayer MaterialScience is in Licking County.  Polyethylene products with a wide range of strength, flexibility, UV protection, and colors owe their origin to compounds developed and produced in Hebron.

One can walk into their new product develop center in the morning with a concept and walk out in the afternoon with a prototype product and the first poly bag of material for production.  This concept-to-product capability puts this Licking County plant on the radar for a wide range of products.

Personally, I like the Steelers' throwback helmet produced by Riddell with polycarbonate from Bayer's Licking County plant.
