Johns Manville is a multinational and global manufacturer of insulation and roofing systems. They have plants across the world in China, Germany, Slovakia, and the United States.
Our tour will be focused on one of their Insulation Systems Manufacturing plants in McPherson, KS. This is a full sized production plant that does everything from unloading raw materials to shipping out finished goods.
The plant is extraordinary because of its automated processes. This would be a great opportunity to look at the controls and process side of engineering. Johns Manville is very relevant to computer and electrical engineers since their plants include a lot of PLCs(Programmable Logical Controllers) and Line Drive systems. Electrical power systems engineers can also get an excellent insight on the plant’s power distribution.
