    Bringing Packaging Automation Solutions to PACK EXPO
    “Tell us about your toughest packaging automation challenge.”

    That was our welcoming statement to booth visitors at the recent PACK EXPO event in Las Vegas, where more than 30K attendees converged to find the latest technologies and solutions to all their packaging challenges. And once we knew their particular issue, we could follow up with multiple solutions as Bishop-Wisecarver has been in business nearly 70 years and has worked with the packaging industry since that first decade.

    With multiple patents showing our experience, and several engineers on hand that love to solve problems, the discussions in the booth were interesting for both our team and the customers.

    The Three Rs of Learning at the Step Ahead Award Conference
    As part of The Manufacturing Institute’s STEP Ahead Honorees class of 2017, I recently attended a conference in Washington D.C. focused on women in manufacturing. Meetings, networking, dinners, ice breakers and tours of the amazing city were all geared towards our unusual group. While I’ve attended numerous tradeshow events and professional organization conferences, this was my first opportunity to be with a large number of women in my industry. What I discovered is already changing me personally and professionally and my “Three Rs of Learning at STEP Ahead” could do the same for you.

Mark emphasizes that “more than one third of all jobs in the California Bay Area are with businesses who either make or move goods” – and that means manufacturing.

    That also means a large number of employment opportunities! Hosting Manufacturing Day is one way BWG works with groups like EBLC to help educate the community on the great career options available locally.
