Rhinelander's Charter NEX Films sets corporate safety record
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander manufacturer set a safety record last year.  Charter NEX Films went all of 2018 without an injury at the plant, according to a press release from Rhinelander Plant Manager Jeremy VanCamp.

The company has now gone more than 600 days injury-free, which means it continues to break corporate safety records every day that goes by.

According to VanCamp, the company employs 70 people in Rhinelander.

Charter NEX Films celebrated with a ribeye grill out for all of its employees.

"It's about the people on the floor and their commitment to safety," Plant Safety Coordinator Ted Towle said in the release.  "The plant's highly engaged workforce has been very accepting of a program to help with peer-to-peer accountability and also submits a large number of safety suggestions which reduces physical hazards."

The company also held active shooter training in Oct. 2017 to further protect its workers.

The company, which is located on Highway 8 near the Rhinelander-Oneida County Airport, makes extruded films for use in packaging across North America.  Their products help make things like cereal box liners and frozen food containers.
