Year 10 Students visit SJG in Alcester

At the beginning of October 2019, a group of Year 10 students visited SJG in Alcester Warwickshire to see design and process involved in the manufacturing of foam conversions, rubber extrusions and gaskets.

Based in Alcester, Warwickshire, SJG have over 40 years’ experience producing foam conversions, rubber extrusions and gaskets for a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, marine, military and defence, as well as for industrial engineering, packaging and promotional design, sports, leisure, medical and mobility.

We were shown how the raw material is processed at each stage to produce the customers’ bespoke product. We were even shown how to design first comes to life through CAD.

Those of us that were not sure about working on the shop floor learnt about jobs in HR, pay role, sales and logistics.

We’d like to thank the SJG team for showing us around.
