12 Days of Manufacturing: Day 4

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 4: Fiberglass Composites
Yesterday, I tweeted about Owens Corning's Science and Technology Center.
Owens Cornings' manufacturing history in Licking County dates back to day one of the company.  The Science and Technology Center in Granville celebrated 50 years in 2011.

More than just fiberglass insulation, the product innovations coming out of the Technology Center are products of the future.  Composites that put fiberglass together with other advanced materials are tomorrow's products being researched today in Licking County.
