Plastics industry needs 25,000 new workers

28 May 2012, Monday /
The current demand for qualified personnel in Turkey’s plastics industry is 25,000 and the Turkish Plastics Industry Research, Development and Training Foundation (PAGEV) conducts research to address this problem.

The association recently established a vocational training center where personnel will be trained and later hired by companies. The center provides trainees with internationally recognized professional competence certificates. The plastics industry contributes an added value of around $20 billion to the Turkish economy every year and is the third largest in Europe. PAGEV expects the new center will serve as an example in efforts to increase the workforce in this sector.
