ELKHART — Students at Concord Junior High School got to ditch their classrooms for a bit on Tuesday to get an inside look at the manufacturing industry with a trip to Kem Krest.

During their visit to the Elkhart-based chemical manufacturer and packager, students were given a guided tour of the plant through four set up stations: auto-bagging, team building, service impact project and pick, pack and ship.

Very nice of Kem Krest to open their plant for the tour. But they are not a manufacturer of products, they package and ship other peoples products to a large customer base all over the country.

Not all manufacturing in Elkhart county is drilling holes and running a fastener gun either. Who ever decided to show students a real manufacturing company did no research at all or chose Kem Krest because they are a convenient location.
