The Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of APICS sponsored a plant tour at American Silk Mills in Hudson, PA on Wednesday, June 19th. The Tour was coordinated by Raymond Presser, Vice President of Logistics. Assisting Mr. Presser with the guided tour was Russ Sokolas, Amy Trotter and Marcie Walsh. There was an excellent turn out for the event with 18 attendees in all. The chapter would like to thank Raymond, Russ, Amy and Marcie for their excellent work in preparing the group for the tour by setting up an information board with photos and terminology before taking each group out on the floor.
The evening was capped off by a special recognition of Raymond Presser by Mike Auriemma, President of the chapter for Raymond’s work in bringing the APICS Body of Knowledge to the team at American Silk. Raymond was instrumental in working with Janet Rosenbaum of the Continuing Education department at Penn State University’s Wilkes-Barre campus to offer 13 individuals from different departments the Basics of Supply Chain Management module.
