Off Topic Everready factory

The old Eveready battery factory in Cleveland. It's been repurposed and new homes put up (expensive AF) and there's a new brewery that just opened. Pretty cool area.

Was that facility taken over by Union Carbide but still produced batteries before succumbing to globalization?

It was originally an Everready factory.

I understand that. What I'm asking was it taken over by Union Carbide sometime in the 60's or 70's before it eventually became apts/condos/whatever.

To my knowledge it was always Everyready and rebranded in 1980 to Energizer. I don't know much about Union Carbide. Only that they did have a presence here on the "Chemical Shore" as we once proudly called this area. LOL How times have changed.

Thanks, I guess all those old buildings look alike. I took a tour through the Union Carbide facility back in the late 70's (a good friend of mine was an engineer there). I remember looking out a wndow and seeing lake Erie. I guess that was the Chemical Shore.

"Chemical Shore" was what they called the NE Ohio shoreline from Cleveland to Ashtabula. and then our river caught on fire. :(

Cleveland today is a lot different then Cleveland in the 50's too, brother. It's a pretty great place to live today. Let me know if you ever get back this way. I'll show you around. :cool:
