The GE glass plant in Somerset makes the same "outdated" glass we are now making. So if this glass is so outdated how come OSI and GE both in Kentucky and the new glass plant in CHINA is still making the stuff. If John W. hadn't made his own precious "Factory in a Factory", and worked as hard to save Philips Lighting as he has worked for United Way on Philips time maybe we would still be around.
