The Forgotten Battery Plant
No known Plant number



This has become the "Forgotten Battery Plant".  This plant, built in 1936 by DR was absorbed in 1942 into the new GM Eastern Aircraft Division, along with four other GM plants for the express purpose of building Grumman TBM Avengers and FM-2 Wildcats to assist the war effort.  Photo from "A History of Eastern Aircraft Division".

Bloomfield as part of Eastern Aircraft built wiring harnesses, hydraulic tubing and assemblies, and ammunition boxes, none of which had any semblance to the lead acid batteries built in prewar times.  After the war this plant was sold and replaced by the larger New Brunswick plant.  Records indicate that the Bloomfield plant is still being used by its post WWII purchaser.  New Brunswick now stands deserted.  Photo from "A History of Eastern Aircraft Division".
