POY Finalist: Stormwater dike
Finalist in Maintenance Tools and Equipment in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The PIG Drive-Over LEAKBLOCKER Dike is specifically designed to contain leaks, divert stormwater, and help facilities meet SPCC and Stormwater Regulations. This flexible barrier will not crush or compromise containment, even when driven over. The HogHyde skin stands up to heavy traffic while resisting the damaging effects of UV rays, making it ideal for long-term use.
It also features a super-sealing urethane that bonds to asphalt and concrete without adhesives. In addition, its narrow footprint fits tight ledges and small surface areas, allowing it to mold easily around mounting brackets and other obstacles.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
