VIDEO: AMT Industry Report on Smartforce

Smartforce development is one of AMT’s key priorities. As part of the Manufacturing Mandate, we recognize that the only way to ensure a strong future for the industry is to build a workforce with the skills and knowledge to work in advanced manufacturing.

We talked to two industry leaders about the importance of Smartforce development: Brian Papke, President of Mazak, and Harry Moser, Founder of the Reshoring Initiative. Mazak has formed a partnership with nearby Gateway Community College to develop student workers, who get hands-on shop floor experience while they also complete their degree. Meanwhile, Moser has been promoting skilled workers as a way to attract reshoring from manufacturers who have moved their production to overseas locations.
