12 Days of Manufacturing: Wrap It Up

This concludes my Twelve Days of Manufacturing  series.  I hope my readers enjoyed it as it unrolled and I hope this series keeps giving to the factual impression that manufacturing is alive in Licking County.

Let me wrap it all up with one, final list with a few manufacturers not on the list the last few days but still having much in common.

Instead of partridges in a pear tree or leaping lords, Licking County's manufacturing list would look like this:

On the twelfth day of manufacturing,
Licking County manufacturers sent to us
Twelve aluminum slabs from Kaiser,
Eleven thin film rolls from Dow,
Ten quartz crucibles from Momentive,
Nine Steelers helmets with polycarbonate from Bayer MaterialScience,
Eight armor composite helmets from ArmorSource,
Seven perfume caps from Anomatic,
Six hand-woven baskets from Longaberger,
Five pipe insulation tubes from Owens Corning,
Four bus axles from Meritor,
Three satellite gyroscopes from Goodrich,
Two radio frequency anntenae from Boeing,
And an unmanned crushing machine from Screen Machine Industries.

More than just being Licking County-found manufacturers, these 12 companies have innovation, new product development, and one-of-kind capabilities common among them.

These 12 products and 12 manufacturers have one more thing in common, along with some other manufacturers not making the list.  All 12 have taken part in giving back to the community by participating in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiatives at our local science museum, The Works.

Thank you!  Merry Christmas!
