What if you could find a way to hire pre-screened, skilled employees while helping your local community? July’s cover story explores this topic as it describes a poverty-fighting nonprofit, the Jane Addams Resource Corp. (JARC), that serves regional manufacturers as both a pipeline of fresh recruits and an incubator of existing talent. In the end, JARC provides a simulated work environment, project-based instruction, the use of industry credentials, training by industry professionals, and sensitivity toward the need for bundled services and bridge programming.

Also in this issue of Modern Machine Shop:

  • Sustainably streamlining production of a varied mix of low-volume work depends not only on a strategy tailored for job shops, but also on human drive and enthusiasm.
  • A Tier-One automotive supplier measures the tool life and cycle time advantages of shrink-fit tooling.
