FST Challenges Global Shortage of Workforce; No Skilled Workers Required to Operate our Machines

FST designs and develops high-end industrial packaging machines, and the global shortage of workers is relevant to all our clients. Therefore, unlike other competing offerings, we put in a lot of effort, so our products require minimal human intervention. When our machines tend a human intervention, we ensure there’s no need for qualified engineers to activate, control and maintain. This approach gives us a competitive edge in days of global shortage of workers disrupting industries and the supply chain.

A recent study showed an estimated shortage of 85 million workers around the globe by 2030. The deficit is almost everywhere: in the United States, there are nearly 11 million job vacancies, Europe is struggling to fill over 1.2 million open job roles, while employers in Australia are working to fill 400,000 vacant positions. Singapore saw 163 job vacancies for every 100 available candidates.

The manufacturing and supply chain segments experience a lack of workers: In the United States, there could be over 2 million unfilled jobs in manufacturing by 2030, and manufacturers in the UK are facing the most extensive labor shortage in over 30 years. The reasons are varied in different regions: technology skills gap, aging population, low wages, and immigration halt due to the pandemic.

We at FST believe the industrial landscape will change dramatically, and we prepare accordingly: easy-to-operate and maintain industrial machinery that requires minimal intervention, like in our Rewinding products.

    Celebrating “Women in Plastics” during PLAST Fair

    We are delighted to share the highlights of an extraordinary Feldman Systems and Technologies event organized during this year's PLAST Fair in Milan. This unique gathering was dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women in the plastics industry. It all began with an article written by our sales manager Paola Pireddu, published in the special edition, Women in Plastics, in the prominent magazine "techno PLAST" in January/February 2023. Paola was listed among the TOP 30 women in the plastics industry in Italy. After the article's publication, Paola had a brilliant idea—to bring together all the remarkable women featured in the magazine's special edition. This vision created an informal association called "Women in Plastics." To make this dream a reality, FST gathered all these accomplished women for a special lunch during the PLAST Fair. It was a memorable gathering. The Women in Plastics event, which took place on September 7th, was [...]
