On Friday, October 2nd, GW Plastics opened the doors to our headquarters in Bethel, VT to celebrate National Manufacturing Day 2015. This annual nationwide event (http://www.mfgday.com/) began four years ago and it focuses on expanding public knowledge about manufacturing and its value to the U.S. economy while addressing the skilled labor shortage in our country.
As one of Vermont’s largest manufacturers, GW Plastics has a long history of creating jobs in Vermont and providing young people with compelling reasons to live and work locally. “There are very few opportunities for students to be exposed to high-quality manufacturing, and we enjoy opportunities to show Vermont’s youth that there are great career opportunities right in their backyard,” said Cathy Tempesta, GW Plastics Director of Human Resources. “We are trying to do as much as we can to give jobs to local residents and to boost Vermont’s economy.”
