GENERAL ELECTRIC TO CLOSE OLDEST LIGHT BULB PLANT IN U.S.

GENERAL ELECTRIC TO CLOSE OLDEST LIGHT BULB PLANT IN U.S.

Charles Webb leaves the General Electric Light Bulb Plant with two cases of light bulbs on the Plant's last day of operation in Wellston, Missouri on February 28, 2007. The St. Louis Lamp Plant, General Electric Co.'s oldest light-bulb manufacturing facility in the U.S., is closing after 96 years. 175 workers will lose their jobs because of rising imports and slumping domestic demand for the soft-white standard incandescent light bulbs that are assembled there.
