GW Plastics is proud to announce that we are rapidly growing in our home state of Vermont due to our dedication to workforce development, and were recently inducted into the Vermont Business Hall of Fame!
For over 60 years, GW Plastics has been a staple in Vermont’s technical landscape, manufacturing lifesaving, safety-critical products right here in the Green Mountains. While expanding internationally, we have also remained dedicated to growing in VT, and partnered with Vermont Technical College on many workforce development initiatives.
We are starting to see the fruits of our labors, as this year, we hired three engineering students directly upon graduation from Vermont Tech in the areas of quality, mold-making, and operations, and graduated our second Manufacturing Technology Leadership class.
This year also marked an exciting milestone in our workforce development initiatives for current employees: the graduation of our second Manufacturing Technology Leadership Program class. The MTLP was founded in 2012 to address the skilled labor shortage, and together in partnership with Vermont Tech, we offer our employees a four-year, hands-on educational program focusing on the skills necessary to be successful in advanced manufacturing.
