12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 7

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 7: Orange Juice with Plant Sterol Additives
Yesterday, I tweeted about Arboris.
Licking County agricultural products get shipped worldwide.  That's no surprise.  However, Licking County's most unique bio product has an interesting niche in its own right.  Plant sterols derived from pine tree extracts make their way overseas in a big way.

In the European Union, food additives are prohibited that contain synthetic compounds.  That's why Arboris' heart-healthy pine tree extract sterols, a product made from completely organic sources, is so popular in the EU.  It's orange juice addition has proven cholesterol-reducing qualities from all-organic sources.
