Feeders satisfy plant's hunger for expansion
Speed and quality were important factors in a project hat almost doubled GE Plastics' annual production rates.
As the world's number one producer of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene [ABS] plastics, General Electric Plastics is by no means a small manufacturing facility. The Ottawa, Ill., plant supplies the plastics needs for a wide variety of General Electric products. But its plastics don't fulfill just GE's needs. The plant also produces plastics for other companies around the world, in applications ranging from bathtub surrounds and auto parts to telephones and computer equipment.
