Domtar joined other companies across North America in celebrating Manufacturing Day in October. Our goal was to inspire the next generation of manufacturers by showcasing the many career opportunities available in the pulp and paper industry.
We invited local students to visit several of our mills and plants for tours, Q&A sessions and hands-on activities to show what it’s like to work in manufacturing and to dispel common misconceptions about our industry.
“Manufacturing Day is a great opportunity to invite local students to see what life is like in our mill. We get to highlight the many career opportunities and get young kids thinking about their future careers,” says Ginny Johnson, who coordinated events at our Nekoosa Mill in Wisconsin.
Here’s a look at a variety of Manufacturing Day events across our network of facilities:
Nekoosa and Rothschild, Wisconsin
The seventh annual North Central Wisconsin Heavy Metal Bus Tour stopped at our Nekoosa and Rothschild mills, giving students from across central and northern Wisconsin a chance to see what a pulp and paper manufacturing facility is like.
