The use of the latest machining and molding equipment simply isn’t enough to become a world-class tool maker and injection molder. Our people truly are our greatest resource. As such, we continually invest in employee training as a key element to Micro Mold’s and Plastikos’ continued success.
Based on our "grow your own" philosophy, we partner with Penn State – Erie, The Behrend College, who’s Plastics Engineering Technology major is one of only four accredited programs in the United States. As a part of the Plastics Training Academy, Penn State Erie houses a 10,500 square foot plastics lab, which is the largest and most comprehensive plastics training lab in the country. Eleven of our engineers earned their degrees from the program, and our partnership with Penn State allows us to recruit some of the highest skilled and most knowledgeable graduates to join our team. In addition to our Plastic’s Engineering Team, Plastikos is comprised of Biomechanical, Industrial, and Material Science Engineers within our Quality and Manufacturing departments.
Additionally, we also sponsor external training for our employees. These external training classes cover the latest injection molding tools, processes, and technologies, as well as general business, leadership, safety, legal, management, and HR topics.
Here are some external training progams that are supported by Micro Mold & Plastikos, just to name a few.
