At Amerimold 2015, a new tool debuted that was designed to help spread excitement about careers in mold manufacturing. Educators and parents today largely ignore the skilled trades that are essential to manufacturing and to our modern way of life. We all need to be involved in promoting the interesting and rewarding careers available in moldmaking and in manufacturing in general.

Today's manufacturers are great places to work: clean, well-lit, and teeming with cool, highly technical equipment. Moldmaking careers provide a solid income during training, allowing young apprentices to earn while they learn and avoid crushing college debt. Those of us within the trade enjoy interesting and challenging careers that provide a rewarding lifestyle.
