Green Bay, Wisconsin – A “Celebration of Safety” luncheon was held today at GLC Minerals, a custom mineral processing facility based in Green Bay. GLC has gone three years – or 215,000 hours – without a lost time work accident.
“This is a significant milestone for our workers and our company,” said GLC Minerals President and COO, Holly Bellmund. “It is especially noteworthy because of the type of work we do; which includes loading and unloading ships as well as processing thousands of pounds of materials every day. It demonstrates the focus all of us have when it comes to creating and maintaining a safe work environment. It’s certainly worth celebrating.”
A luncheon was provided for employees during the plant’s shift change to say thank you for their diligence in creating a culture of safety. All 19 plant employees are members of Teamsters Union Local 662. In addition to the plant employees, there are 15 office/administrative staff at the plant, located on the Port of Green Bay.
Established in 1871, GLC Minerals, formerly Great Lakes Calcium, is a fifth generation, family-owned business. It was also a founding member of the Greater Green Bay Chamber of Commerce. “To this day, we continue to be active members of the business community,” said Bellmund. “Our company’s longevity is a testament to our outstanding workforce that makes us successful. It’s fitting we take some time out today to recognize their efforts; especially when it comes to safety.”
