The Future of American Mold Making


Currently, mold makers in the USA cannot keep up with the domestic demand for molds. GSM bridges that gap by sourcing tools and components from outside the USA. However, we’re also working to bridge the gap by building new mold makers right here at home. We have apprentice programs for machinists (who become experts at making parts to print using CNC, EDM, grinding, etc.) and for mold makers. We also have programs for die makers in our metal stamping die business. We’re always looking to improve every aspect of our business, especially this one. So, we’d like to hear from you: How are you bridging that gap?

We are open to sharing our successes and struggles with our customers and suppliers. We’ve had success in recruiting apprentices and using NIMS (National Institute of Metalworking Standards) to develop and assess skills. We are struggling to recruit experienced people who not only have a strong skill set, but are also qualified teachers who can integrate the HR aspects of managing the program with results on the shop floor. We’re also striving to extend the success to other job functions (like programming, design, project management, etc.). If you have suggestions to improve our apprentice programs, please let us know. We welcome your input as we work to build excellent tools and excellent people which help our customers produce excellent parts.
