What an awesome visit we had this morning to Owens-Illinois (O-I). Plant Manager Henry welcomed our group and gave a very nice overview of Owens, the glass industry, the advancements and challenges of this global company, and valuable advice to our group on their future opportunities. EHS Manager Libby gave a safety presentation prior to our tour. She discussed many safety items and also shared food safety compliance regulations. Asst. Plant Manager Tom (Nagle) shared the history of O-I’s Streator Plant. He also asked for introductions/future plans from the group, he challenged them to become leaders, and Tom was our plant tour guide. Joe, Nate (Clift), Tyler, and Michael also gave valuable advice on opportunities within this industry. We then were taken on an amazing tour. From the “mold shop”...to raw materials in the furnace…to the finished product in packaging. We witnessed all the glass manufacturing processes that after 100 plus years, still exist right here in Streator. Thank you so much O-I Streator! Thank you for the gifts and morning treats as well!
