Stronger than Steel

Paul Brennan is the managing director of ASP Plastics. He comes from a broad industry and manufacturing background, and has been using this skill to help ASP Plastics grow for the past 8 years. He shows us the wide variety of surprising goods which are created from plastic, and gives us a tour around the workshop of ASP plastics.

We also chat to some apprentices at ASP Plastics, such as Michael Towers, finding out what their roles include, and what they studied to get where they are now.

Currently, ASP Plastics employee 12 to 13 apprentices, some of these are straight from school others are mature age students. Most are studying a Polymer Technology at Lidcombe TAFE.

This is a course that has been around for only 4 years. It was developed after it was recognised that there was a huge skills shortage in this trade.
