POY Finalist: Containment bag
Finalist in Maintenance Tools and Equipment in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The PIG Drum Containment Bag provides secondary containment and an easy way to hoist containers on and off a truck for convenient field-to-shop mobility. This product is UN-rated for solid hazardous materials shipments and helps facilities comply with shipping and storage regulations.
The bag features 6,000-lb capacity lifting straps—strong enough to support a fully loaded 55-gal drum—and can be easily loaded and unloaded using only a truck hoist. Its puncture-resistant, PVC-coated shell clips shut to keep rainwater out, and an abrasion-resistant bottom provides toughness for dragging purposes.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
