Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports Education Efforts in the Industry

Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports Education Efforts in the Industry

Huron Automatic Screw Company stands behind the Precision Machined Products Association as their Education Foundation encourages youth to explore opportunities in the industry.

The Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) is one of the major networking associations for our industry. They help to connect manufacturers so that we can share new methods and machinery to continue pushing the industry forward as a whole. Within the PMPA is their Education Foundation whose mission is “To promote and fund education, training and career opportunities in the Precision Machining Industry.” Recently, the Education Foundation released an inspirational video showing the industry’s overwhelming, but discrete, function in society. To watch the video click here.

A Look into the World’s “Best Kept Secret”

What most people visualize when they think about the precision machining/manufacturing industry is a row of warehouses with loud machines and assembly lines producing a lot of smoke. However, that hasn’t been the case for decades. Nowadays, jobs in the precision machining/manufacturing sector are quite complicated and technical with never-ending opportunities to learn, apply, and innovate. In the video released by the PMPA, industry professionals explain the immense responsibility the industry holds when it comes to providing parts for nearly every other industry. The precision machining industry transforms great ideas into applicable products, using brilliant minds and cutting-edge technology.

In the video, Barry Butters, from Gateway Technical College, refers to precision machining as possibly the “…world’s best-kept secret.” Most people don’t realize how much precision machining contributes to some of the most important global industries. From the arts to the sciences, precision machining provided the parts for Jimi Hendrix’s Fender Stratocaster as well as the parts for NASA’s latest space mission. The video, which runs less than three minutes, does a great job of defining the importance of precision machining while providing some truly incredible visuals of the latest technology used in the process.

Spreading the Word

The PMPA’s Education Foundation has three essential goals:

  • Establish partnerships with high schools and technical colleges to develop training programs.
  • Collect, maintain, and communicate information about training programs to the public.
  • Support and communicate the development and revision of standards within the industry.

In addition to this, the Education Foundation has grant funds available to assist individuals, schools, and companies for education and training activities in precision machining. It’s very important to spread awareness to youth that precision machining is a great industry to be a part of. Huron Automatic Screw Company joins the PMPA in encouraging people to spread the word about one of the most fascinating industries in the job market.

Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports Growth of Manufacturing Apprenticeship Programs

Huron Automatic Screw Company Supports Growth of Manufacturing Apprenticeship Programs

The Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) was selected as National Partner to grow apprenticeships in manufacturing.

Huron Automatic Screw Company has been a proud member of the PMPA since 1933. We recognize that it is important to support the machining industry by being an active participant in organizations like the PMPA that push for progress, innovation, and collective benefits for everyone involved in the industry. The PMPA is an international trade association representing the interests of the precision machined products industry and encouraging the on-going involvement of its members in order to create strong trade associations.

The objective of the PMPA is to build a cooperative foundation for North American manufacturers that provides an edge over global competitors. One contributing factor to gaining the edge over competitors is to provide accessible and rigorous apprenticeship programs that produce well-trained, hard-working employees.

Supporting Education in Metalworking

One of the PMPA’s greatest investments thus far has been to partner with the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS). NIMS was formed in 1994 by metalworking trade associations to develop and maintain a competent and globally competitive labor work force. They set skill standards for the industry, certify individual skills against the standard, and accredit training programs that meet NIMS quality requirements.

Recently, NIMS was selected by the U.S. Department of Labor as an industry intermediary to support the expansion of registered apprenticeships within manufacturing. The PMPA will be assisting NIMS in providing more accessible apprenticeship programs and helping employers to develop more inclusive programs that reach a more diverse talent pool. NIMS was granted $500,000 to support manufacturers that want to establish a registered apprenticeship program with the Department of Labor.

“This contract gives us the unique opportunity to create more impact in our industry by expanding apprenticeships to underrepresented populations and to new companies looking to establish a sustainable talent pipeline,” said Jim Wall, Executive Director, NIMS

What this Means for Huron Automatic Screw Company

As a company who owes a great deal of its success and reputation to hard-working employees, Huron Automatic Screw Company understands the value of these programs. We’re excited to see that our industry is receiving recognition from the government. In an economy where the price of education continues to rise, there is a noticeable shift toward learning a trade, and we are happy to be a part of it. Huron Automatic Screw Company looks forward to seeing, and hopefully hiring, the employees produced by the new programs that will come from this contract.
