The reality TV craze is looking at the plastics industry this year -- well, sort of -- with a new program on Animal Planet that features an acyrlic fabricator. It's not just any fabricator, though. The subject of "Tanked," which airs on Friday nights, is Acyrlic Tank Manufacturing Inc., a family-owned company, based in Las Vegas, that specializes in huge aquariums. ATM appears to have some significant manufacturing capabilities -- check them out here. Check out the video below for a sample of the type of tanks this company makes, or this link for more videos. And for a taste of another acrylic fabricator that's doing impressive work, see Plastics News senior reporter Frank Esposito's feature story on Reynolds Polymer Technology Inc. of Grand Junction, Colo., which built a giant display enclosure for a historic carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York.
