Training for success at MAMCO

MAMCO, a leading provider of custom injection molding services, has obtained the services of software maker A. Routsis Associates to launch a state-of-the-art workforce training program improving operational efficiencies and streamlining communication across its divisions.

The training program is part of a larger effort by the State of New York to increase the number of highly skilled laborers across the state. In 2004 the state awarded MAMCO a grant to pay for the cost and implementation of the training program.

“The training software covers everything from the entry-level employee to the highest position – machine operators, quality associates, tool and die making, and sales,” said Joel Stanley, MAMCO’s production manager.

Different levels of training are administered depending on an employee’s position. Generally, entry-level staff receive approximately six hours of training to become certified in their specific area of expertise. Stanley, on the other hand, will take closer to 70 hours of training as a member of the management team.

The program is administered in hour-long video segments, with each segment followed by a review and test. Once a trainee successfully passes a test, he or she can move on to the next training segment. So far, about a quarter of MAMCO’s workforce has successfully completed the training, with 100 percent completion estimated for later this year.

“One of the biggest things we’ve noticed is that it gives us uniformity and consistency in the terminology we use and in the way we do things,” Stanley said.

MAMCO will be eligible for a state reimbursement covering the costs of training once all employees are fully trained. Stanley said the program has been instrumental in helping staff in different divisions better understand MAMCO’s business goals.

“The goal is to have a more skilled workforce,”he said. “I would say that it has been very successful.”
