Belmark schedules career fair

De Pere firm opening Shawano facility in 2018

A De Pere manufacturer that is planning to build a new facility in Shawano is conducting a career fair later this month.

Belmark, a leader in the pressure sensitive label, flexible packaging and folding carton industry, said in a press release that it is recruiting employees for multiple positions at its Northeast Wisconsin facilities.

The firm announced in June that it will construct an approximately 120,000-square-foot, $12 million light manufacturing, paper products related facility in Shawano. Construction is scheduled to start by spring 2017 with full production beginning by spring 2018.

Established in 1977, Belmark is presently growing at a rate of more than four times the industry average, according to the statement from the company, and is looking to add more than 90 employees over the next year in the following areas: semi-skilled production workers, press operators, finance, graphics, sales and marketing, customer service, accounting and human resources.

The company will host a career fair from 1-6 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Bemis International Conference Center, 299 Third St., De Pere.

The career fair will allow job-seekers and Belmark’s hiring staff to meet in person.

“It gives us a chance to talk to candidates one-on-one and give them an overview of our company,” said Heather Swanson, the company’s talent acquisition coordinator. “You get to talk to Belmark team members who can share stories and experiences about what it’s like to work for a fast-growing, local company.”

During the career fair, candidates will also learn about additional company benefits that make Belmark unique, including a fitness center and a free on-site health clinic, Welmark.

Pre-registration is not required and more information can be found online at belmark.com, Facebook/Belmark or LinkedIn/Belmark.

Belmark’s facilities include a four-plant campus dedicated to prepress, press and finishing production. More than 850 people are employed at the company’s Heritage Road location in De Pere.

The Shawano facility property includes 15 acres north of County Road B, east of Waukechon Street and west of Industrial Drive.
