GE Silicones.

GE Silicones will begin the second phase of a $53 million global expansion program to increase production capacity for specialty silicone products and add state-of-the-art applications development capabilities in the Far East. The plan includes expansion of the Waterford, NY facility's batch-finishing operation for two-part temperature vulcanizing silicones. Completion is scheduled for the first quarter of 1993. The company also opened a fully equipped application development center at Oyama, Japan. The facility was built by Toshiba Silicone, a joint venture between GE Silicones and Toshiba.
