GE Circleville Lamp Plant « on: December 14, 2019, 06:14:00 AM » Author: James
I found a wonderful movie online showing a full tour of GE's fluorescent lamp plant celebrating its 50th anniversary in 1998 - see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDDw0OI44HE
This has inspired me to write up the rest of the history of this factory which had been missing from my site for a long time since it was only very recently that Circleville closed down - see here

Very cool video James . I live about 25-30 minutes from Circleville . Do you know if the plant is still open ? If so I might see if they give plant tours !

Read James' descripton again, at the end. He said it recently closed down. They closed in September 2017.
