Someone wrote they are closing the wrong plant? Lots of water?
What planet are you from? Yes it takes water. Lots of water. Lots of clean water. CLEAN water. And reliable power.
Maineville has none of that.
The wrong plants were shut down; Salem Or. The reason the semi-conductor grew in Ca. and Or. was because of the readily available and plentiful water and power.
The reason Maineville stayed open was purely a political move by the Sumitomo President. By the time Japan realized the management in Ohio flat out lied about the costs of their utility bills and the cost of moving and setting up critical equipment from Salem, it was too late. Must save face! He should have been handed a short sword and a bamboo mat.
Next the entrenched management at Sumco Ohio, also known as the "Good 'Ole Boys Club" should have been fired, my preference would have been cement shoes and tossed into the pond in front of the plant.
Gordon had a chance to clean house. He moved a couple people out. It amounted to cutting off the head, but the snake still lived.
I feel bad, especially for the production operators and others who really tried to make a difference. The Good 'Ole Boys will not suffer as the operators will. Too bad, how about getting their shoe sizes?....
Love and kisses, from someone who tried.
