Changes and New Techniques in the Processing and Manufacturing Industry

My name is Lucy. Welcome to my blog. Years ago, I worked in the processing and manufacturing industry, and now, as an owner of a small textiles company, I still work closely with my suppliers who are part of those industries. As a result, I enjoy staying up-to-date with changes and new techniques in these industries, and I want to share that information with others here. When I'm not busy running my business or working on a creative project like this, I like to knit, spend time with my kids, go to museums and attend wine tastings. The last might just be my favourite.
