TSE Celebrates Women in the Rubber Industry

TSE Industries is pleased to have two of its employees in this year’s “Women in Rubber” video celebrating women’s contributions to the rubber industry. The video, co-produced by RDAbbott and the Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society, features Technical Manager Veselinka Mitevska (10+ years of service) and Lab Manager Vivian Hoenshell (32+ years of service) at the 52-second mark.

Featuring short clips and still images of women throughout the rubber industry, this video celebrates the diverse contributions women are making as scientists, executives, and engineers, and as leaders in marketing, sales, manufacturing, warehousing, and beyond. The video also highlights women from the past and present rubber industry with experiences ranging from one to 43 years.

During the video’s production, Veselinka was asked, “What drew you to the rubber industry, and what has made our career in the industry rewarding?” Her response was uplifting. “Success in this industry requires determination, hard work, and effort, but if you are driven and passionate, it is worthwhile.”

Thank you, Vivian and Veselinka, for your dedication to TSE and to the industry, and cheers to all the women and their innumerable ways they are changing the world of rubber.
