The importance of educating youth for a successful career path ahead is a concept we wholeheartedly support here at Perfection Spring & Stamping Corp. This is particularly true in the “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) field that faces worker shortages. With this in mind, our company, which manufactures custom metal stampings and mechanical assemblies, continues to provide opportunities to educate & train individuals through our variety of apprenticeship programs, including a Tool & Die Apprentice Program.
Building a Strong Base for Future Success
As part of our Tool & Die Apprentice Program, apprentices take related theory courses through TMA. the non-profit Technology and Manufacturing Association (TMA). The TMA program has received national accreditation. On May 25, 2017 the latest group of students graduated, including one of our apprentices! Congratulations Joey and his classmates on their great accomplishment! It is an exciting step for the younger generation in building vibrant life-long careers as Tool & Die Makers, not to mention, they help strengthen STEM progression.
Rejuvenating the Manufacturing Industry
Our Tool & Die Apprentice Program with TMA is more important today than ever, given the labor shortages in STEM. It is a valuable way to discount myths about working in the manufacturing sector and get youth excited about careers in this sector. This movement, to remove the stigma from manufacturing and expose youth to the large variety of career opportunities, is being recognized and supported by our local Illinois government. In fact, the Lt. Governor, Evelyn Sanguinetti, spoke and handed out diplomas to the graduates.
Doing so is of benefit and important to the manufacturing industry; it can help boost workforce numbers. It also grows our communities and has the potential to boost the overall economy.
