Wittmann Battenfeld Inc. hosted an Open House and Future Careers Event at its U.S. deadquarters in Torrington, Conn. on Nov. 8, targeting the younger generation in an effort to educate them on the many types of job opportunities available in the manufacturing sector. More 200 guests showed up at the event, greatly exceeding expectations and creating what the machine builder described as a rewarding experience for the attendees.

Guests learned about Wittmann Battenfeld’s background, products and plastics manufacturing process in general from David Preusse, president of the company. Various other employees discussed their responsibilities with 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,” said Preusse. “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.”
