Manufacturing Day, held nationwide on October 2, was a huge success for Wittmann Battenfeld at its Torrington, CT, headquarters. Targeting the event toward the younger generation about to enter the workforce, the global manufacturer and supplier of plastics processing equipment hosted more than 100 students from three different local high schools. Also attending the event both to observe and participate were two prominent Connecticut government officials: Jay Case, State Representative for Torrington and surrounding communities, and Adam Ney, Team Leader-Outreach & Engagement for the Connecticut Business & Industry Association.
Students began the day with an introduction to Wittmann Battenfeld and the plastics industry as a whole. They learned the basics of the plastics production process and the part that Wittmann Battenfeld's robots, molding machines and auxiliary equipment play in the grand scheme of things.
