Delco-Remy 50th Year
This twelve page brochure was handed
out to visitors as they toured the plants in Anderson. The
information provided within the twelve pages gives an excellent history
of the early Delco-Remy Division of General Motors.
An iconic photo of Plant 18 at night with
all the lights on, and the Plant 17 water tower in the background.
It was common practice to leave the lights on in Plant 18 at night and
on the weekends, which brought about a lot of questions as to this
practice during the power shortages of the late 1970s. As of March
2015 when this page was added to the website, Plant 18 still stode along
Scatterfield Road, more commonly know as the Bypass when this photo and
brochure was released. It is still known to many of us by that
name. Plant 18 is scheduled for demolition in 2015 to make way for
a new Purdue Education Center.
