Cub Manufacturing

Cub Manufacturing, Madison, IN

The plastics industry and other manufacturers requiring skilled workers suffer from a nationwide skills gap. Skilled workers are in short supply. MAPP, the Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (http://www.mappinc.com) is working to make a difference. At MAPP's October 2014 Benchmarking Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana, Roger Williams, President of Royer Corporation, heard Craig Cegielski's story about Cardinal Manufacturing. Within just a year, a new program was launched. Watch the video below to learn more.
