By 1952 it is called the Rockford Cabinet Plant of General Electric, which suggests they are producing radio or TV cabinets produced by General Electric. In 1973 the plant was called the General Electric Cabinet Co.  In 1974 the plant was closed until 1975 because the demand for wooden television cabinets had decreased.
