Baker CAC to hold reunion

By Alex Galbraith
50 years after it first opened its doors, Baker CAC will hold a reunion at the Red Maple Restaurant in Gretna on October 25. The business was the largest employer in Plaquemines Parish at one time, with 525 employees working in its Belle Chasse headquarters at its height. Baker made a name for itself selling emergency shutdown systems for oil rigs and pipelines. The patented sensors and shutoff valves created by Baker CAC helped lead the way toward the unmanned oilproduction facilities operating  today.
