Tool and die makers desperately casting for workers

By Cory Arbogast on Apr 13, 2015 12:34:00 PM

According to USA Today, the tool and die industry experienced 36% closure from 1998 to 2010. In addition, the employment fell 45% from the automotive industry downturn in the early 2000’s and the 2008-09 recession.

Blog-1Team PPI is taking action. PPI hired Rob Jenkins in late July 2013 to begin an apprenticeship program aimed at becoming an elite tool maker and an eventual Process Engineer for the company. Rob’s training is being overseen by multiple highly skilled tool makers. However, at this time Tom Rittenour is working with Rob on metrology, machine set-up, and 3D programming of this Makino SNC64 GS High Speed Machine.
