GE Plastics unveils a monument Jan. 19 in Torino, Italy, dedicated to the 2006 Olympic Winter Games. The monument, designed to look like an ice-covered mountain with vertical rock formations and a central spire, has been dubbed Giant's Tooth in honor of a mountain peak along the border of Italy and France. The 26-foot-high structure is made of nearly 6,000 square feet of GE's Lexan Margard polycarbonate sheet and GE lights. As part of the exhibit, GE employees will be able to send messages via the Internet that will be displayed across the base on a digital system. GE Plastics is based in Pittsfield, Mass.
