How we will be involved with National Manufacturing Day:
We invite people in the local community to come and see what a career in manufacturing is all about. On the day you will be given a tour of the manufacturing facility to see what it takes to produce quality, innovative and resourceful packaging product. We will host workshop teaching students the "value of packaging" helping them to learn about sustainability, resourcefulness and the circular economy. Following the session there will be a tour of the manufacturing facility.
