Reliance Label Promotes First Female Press Operator

March 19, 2021

Reliance Label Solutions, a leading provider of Global Harmonized System (GHS) labeling solutions, is proud to announce the promotion of the first female press operator in our history.

In July of 2019, Reliance Label hired Chelsea Spiller as an entry level production associate. Spiller had no printing experience but showed enthusiasm to learn the trade. Within months, she was assisting the Senior Press Operator, running the flexographic press with little assistance, and seeking as much on-the-job training as she could get. Even amidst a pandemic, Spiller made Reliance history by becoming the company’s first female Press Operator in just fourteen months. Spiller’s supervisor and Production Manager, Jeff VanDonsel, said “She may not know it, but she has raised the bar at Reliance for women in production.”

With March being celebrated as Women’s History Month, we at Reliance are proud to have Ms. Spiller become such an important part of our team.

From taking on industrial roles during wartime, to fighting for equal pay, women have been on the front line of change in America. Now, Chelsea Spiller stands on that front line at Reliance Label Solutions, inspiring her colleagues to pursue advancement in any profession they choose. #WomensHistoryMonth2021

Reliance Label COVID-19 (coronavirus) Customer and Partner Statement

Updated August 17, 2020

To our Valued Customers and Business Partners,

We are pleased to report no COVID-19 cases at our Paola manufacturing facility, and no issues with our supply line for incoming raw materials as well.

We continue to be as proactive as possible with regards to keeping our employees safe.  We have implemented temperature checks for all employees entering the building.  Our employees are following CDC guidelines for social distancing, regular hand washing, use of masks and regular cleaning & disinfecting of all frequently touched surfaces.

We have signed a lease on additional office space near our facility.  When it is safe to move office employees back from their at-home offices, they will now be in an office separate from manufacturing. This will also help us add more manufacturing and storage capacity to our plant.

As part of the ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WORKFORCE, Reliance will continue to take additional preventative measures we deem necessary to remain fully operational and ensure no delays to our Customers.

Our thoughts are with our many friends, co-workers, customers and suppliers, Especially those whose loved ones are fighting the illness.
