The Trenton plant enjoyed youthful enthusiasm and curiosity brought by high school students from several of the county schools. Trenton hosted three school groups on October 7 and 21 for the Tour of Gibson County Manufacturing Day 2016.
Group Leaders led the presentation and tour for each group, including an example of the Lean system. The “hands on” demonstration of a lean project was fun for the students. The plant tour was informative for the students and for the teachers that accompanied them. The presentation emphasized absenteeism, presenting yourself at an interview, and giving your best, no matter what job you have.
Each student left with a bag of freshly popped popcorn (a big hit!) and a realistic outlook of the expectations of employment and the numerous job opportunities in manufacturing.
