Star Equipment Plant

The Star Equipment Plant became a part of GE's lamp machine-building operations in 1971. At that time there was a tremendous requirement for additional lampmaking machinery, which could not be fulfilled by the Cleveland Equipment Works at the East 152nd Street Facility. In that year GE bought an empty facility in Mentor (OH) to create the Mentor Equipment Plant, and two smaller job shops. These became known as the Independence Equipment Plant and the Star Equipment Plant. The latter was quite small, and was closed down in 1975 with its operations being absorbed into Cleveland, Mentor and Independence.
