On Feb 2nd students from the Young Entrepreneurs class, Project Lead the Way classes and Career & Finance classes visited Confer Plastics located in North Tonawanda. They were introduced to the manufacture of pool ladders and kayaks through the use of blow molding. Students were able to witness the manufacturing of various plastic products and see the shipping and storage of the goods. Bob Confer hosted the tour and led discussion on choosing careers and the college or training that would be needed. There is a great need for truck drivers, and machinists with the potential to make good money. Topics included business, human resources, costs of running a business and employee softskills.
