12 Days Of Manufacturing: Day 12

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 12: Aluminum Slabs
Yesterday, I tweeted about Kaiser Aluminum.

Kaiser's Heath plant has a 60+ year legacy in Licking County taking aluminum from bauxite and scrap to ingots and slabs. The heavy alloy plant has the last hot roll process plant of its kind left in the World.

Innovation and new product development are in the mix. Slabs are a new product line out of this plant in 2011.

Ask them about their productivity track record too. Impressive.
