For 9 years Shepherd Thermoforming and Packaging has hosted Humber College students with a seminar and a tour of the Shepherd facility. Humber’s Package Design course includes a segment on Thermoforming and each year its instructor Bert Bobrovniczky has arranged this event at Shepherd which was attended by 15 students this year.

Humber Students 2014 (12 of 8)The students have the use of a small table top vacuum former donated to the school by Shepherd, allowing them to produce thermoformed samples. The students have to design a package and hand build a wood mould which they use to form parts on the machine. They then finish the package with graphic inserts and printed boxes. With what they have to work with they form some excellent parts and show surprising creativity.


The students get first hand exposure to the complete process of design, tool making and production while visiting Shepherd. They also learn about sustainability and environmental issues pertaining to his or her part. Hats off to Mr. Bobrovincsky for arranging the visit every year and good luck to the students in their careers!
