The Plastics Manufacturing Program is designed to prepare students for entry-level jobs in the plastics industry. Significant time with injection and extrusion molding processes and equipment coupled with basic maintenance and automation skills allows for several positions in plastics manufacturing.
The courses will be held exclusively in Paris at the Vo-Tech Center, at the old high school.
The program is intended to promote current employees in the plastics field and provide new students with a job soon after completing the program. Area companies such as National American Lighting and Libman Co. have already dedicated resources and funds to get the program started.
The Plastics Manufacturing program is available as a certificate and an Associate in Applied Science Degree.
