High school students have toured Berg’s Brisbane site to learn more about a career in manufacturing and welding.
The site hosted year-10 students from St. Patrick’s College discussing supply chain, engineering and project management.
Berg Engineering Operations Manager Paul Otway said manufacturing, like any industry, needs new people coming in to learn and take up roles as people retire.
“It’s really rewarding to host a teenager who maybe hasn’t included a career in manufacturing or welding in their future yet, and for them to hear from us about how we’ve had a career last decades, that we’ve supported our families, that we’ve been able to stay in Brisbane while working for Berg, it’s my favourite part of the tour – that education piece,” Otway said.
“I really love championing this industry and hosting the schools is a fantastic way to educate them on what a career in manufacturing and welding and with Berg can bring them.”
