Images of the Detrex Plant in Arlington Texas


I was at Detrex for 12 years (August 11, 1986 to April 1, 1998), and I took a few pictures
over the years, even after I left the company. Here are some of the pictures I've collected:

The plant closed sometime around 2000 I think. The pretty new sign looked worn out by 2005. This makes me sad:

The plant is still on the block. Here are the 2008 snapshots. I notice they finally took the sign down:
