12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 6

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 6: Satellite Gyroscopes
Yesterday, I tweeted about Goodrich.

Goodrich doesn't make tires anymore, but there's a wide array of aerospace products they do make.  The engineering services and R&D operation in Heath has a hand in both the ones already in use as well as some next generation product lines yet to be seen.

Gyroscopes and accelerometers don't usually end up in normal, day-to-day conversations.  They do at Goodrich in Heath. 

Manufacturing of gyroscopes first designed in Heath are a predictive future for Goodrich.  Stay tuned.
