Wittmann Battenfeld Inc. is taking steps to ensure the younger generation is well aware of job opportunities that are available in the manufacturing sector. The latest example of that was on Nov. 8 when the company hosted an open house and future careers event at its U.S. headquarters in Torrington, CT. More than 200 guests showed up at the event, which the company says "greatly exceeding expectations and creating an even more rewarding experience for the attendees."

WiBaControlsScott_0.jpegGuests heard from Wittmann Battenfeld's President David Preusse about the background of the company, as well as some information about Wittmann Battenfeld's products and plastics manufacturing process in general. Various other employees discussed their segments of the company, their careers and the opportunities that exist to work in robotics and plastics technology. In addition, there were live demonstrations of Wittmann Battenfeld machinery and equipment in action.

One visitor to the open house, a program manager at a local manufacturer of plastic injection molds, later sent Wittmann Battenfeld the following message: "Your team did an outstanding job articulating their roles in the company and there was a genuine enthusiasm and passion for the job and company. I have been to enough of these open houses to know that you can't fake that."

"We were very pleased with the number of attendees and their enthusiasm with the day's events," Preusse said. "We're trying to do our part to make sure that young people stay excited about this industry and help keep it vibrant and innovative. I think we certainly accomplished that today."
