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
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.
