Peer-to-Peer Exchange sessions have been a consistent highlight and benefit for moldmakers who attend the American Mold Builders Association’s (AMBA) annual conference. During these sessions, attendees that share similar roles within their companies meet in small groups to discuss challenges they are facing, explore new ideas for moving their companies forward and expand their professional networks. I had the opportunity to sit in on one of the five sessions, which was for Leaders and Top Management, held at last week’s conference in Itasca, Illinois, and even had the pleasure to moderate the discussion.

Participants in our group of mold shop leaders and top management were John Hill of Midwest Mold Services (Roseville, Michigan), Jeff Schaller of Strohwig Industries, Jason Sparks of Concept Molds (Schoolcraft, Michigan), Don Dumoulin of Precise Tooling Solutions (Columbus, Indiana), Jeff Lucas of Minco Group (Dayton, Ohio), Michael Bohning of Creative Blow Mold Tooling (Lee’s Summit, Missouri), Tim Deckard of D&M Tool Corp. (Springville, Indiana), Paul Szymanski of Do-Rite Die & Engineering (S. Chicago Heights, Illinois) and John Karras of PM Mold Company (Schaumburg, Illinois). A great group!

Amerimold has always been an opportune time for buyers and sellers to connect, but it has grown to be much more than that. I touched on some of that in my blog last week, which you can catch here, but I’d like to take it a step further. 

Amerimold is about relationship building. For a lot of us Amerimold “veterans,” it is like “old home week” because we are reconnecting with industry friends and colleagues who we have known for years. Still, there is room to further build those bonds and learn more about the people who are passionate about this industry. Jobs change, roles change. We can all learn something new every time we meet.

I have attended many career events where students say they want to pursue a job in which they can work with technology, but they don’t correlate that manufacturing thrives on the utilization of advanced technologies.
