12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 11

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 11: Steel Strapping
Yesterday, I tweeted about Samuel Strapping Systems in Heath.

Samuel makes steel strapping at its facility that opened in 2007. Truckloads and rail gondola carloads of steel coils come in by the hundreds of tons every day. The fabricated steel strapping product goes out the door by the hundreds of tons too.

Innovation is here too. Samuel's heat treat line is unique to North America as it uses bismuth metal instead of lead.

Samuel's Licking County story is only five years in the making but an expansion in 2011 is already making a second chapter on productivity and manufacturing prowess.
