I am very excited to tell everyone about my new job and what I got to do as a result of it. I was hired as an Industrial Engineer by a small-medium sized company that does work with other companies. One of the companies we work with is Procter & Gamble. For anyone that doesn’t know, P&G is one of the world’s biggest companies that manufactures a multitude of products, from foods to cleaning agents to personal care products. Recently I had a chance to tour one of their facilities that manufactures Family Care products, such as paper towels and toilet paper, and Baby Care products, which means – you guessed it – diapers!
As soon as I entered the first room where the diapers were made, the sweet aroma from the chemicals in the diapers greeted my nostrils like a friendly welcome. They permeated the whole room. I was given a tour of the entire facility, from the production lines where the diapers were made, to the dock doors where the materials are received, to the warehouses where materials were stored.
Something else that was amazing about the facility is that they were not shy about using the word "diaper". It was painted on some of the fork trucks, and it was even on some doors, which is where my Avatar comes from.
Overall, it was a really cool place to see and was a great experience.
