A Visit to the Stampin' Up! Kanab Manufacturing Plant

Yesterday I told you about our visit to the Stampin' Up! Home Office in Riverton and how that had been one of the things on the Incentive Trip that I was really looking forward to, well today I am going to tell you about our visit the next day to Kanab where Stampin' Up! have their manufacturing facility.  If anything I was even more excited about this as I was fascinated to know how the wonderful stamps we use are actually made.  I must have been excited as the very very early start and the long journey did not worry me!

As it turned out part of our journey made the news - we travelled in a specially chartered airplane and it was the largest ever to land at the St George Airport!  You can read all about it here.

After the long journey this is how we were greeted

After lunch we were shown around the manufacturing unit by the lovey Rob who is in charge of production scheduling and warehousing.

I will tell you more about the production process in a future Find Out About Friday Posts, but how about this as a view out of your warehouse!

Also on the site is a flat for the family when they stay - it was beautiful and very much as I imagined Shelli's house to be!

We had a little time on the way home to visit the playground that Stampin' Up! refurbished (in honor of Shelli's husband Sterling's father).  The ground in covered in scraps of rubber from the plant and it is so so springy to walk on!

You do have to wonder what anyone who turned up to use the playground would have thought as four coachloads of very excited Demonstrators descended on it and were more interested in the floor than the climbing frames!
