PRAISE FOR THE AMERICAN INJECTION MOLDING INSTITUTE

“The American Injection Molding Institute has delivered a curriculum which offers the plastics industry a new standard of professional and technical education. By listening to the needs of industry and bridging the gap between university preparation and schedule driven product industrialization, AIM provides the auto industry immediate value for professional development investment. The comprehensive balance at AIM between product design, material science, tooling and manufacturing process validation, aligns with the real challenges inherent to all plastic product development.”

What if you invested in your employees the same way you invested in new equipment?

It’s just as important to keep your employees up-to-date as it is your software and machines.

Any business that doesn’t believe in
training, evolving, and moving their people forward
is paying a much steeper price than it realizes.

Huffington Post

Companes that invest $1,500 or more per employee per year on training average

24% higher profit margins

than companies with lower yearly training investments.

If your reluctance for training employees is that others may see their increased value, then you must acknowledge the value opportunity lost if you don’t.

-John Beaumont, Founder, AIM

In our industry, the skills gap is a very real issue. Good employees will have opportunities to grow elsewhere if they aren’t getting them from you.

Every year, for every 64 injection molding facilities in the US, there is only one plastics engineer graduating.
