The first-ever General Electric Plastics plant will shut down by the end of 2010, according to a story from the Taunton, Mass., Gazette. The plant, now the Haskon Aerospace unit of Esterline Technologies Corp., "was known as the first factory in General Electric's plastics division," according to the story. GE operated the plant for 60 years, and employed 800 there. Now it is down to 101 workers. The factory makes rubber seals for airplane doors and windows. The parent company is consolidating those operations at a larger plant in Brea, Calif.
