A local company with roots in central Orange County dating back to 1969 is contributing in a small way towards rebuilding the manufacturing base of our region. Interplex Nascal, Inc. has decided that they will train their own Tool and Die Makers in an effort to supplement a highly respected craft. This 2-year program offers a great opportunity for job seekers looking to learn a trade while earning a competitive wage.

“Like many employers requiring personnel with highly specialized skills, Interplex Nascal has difficulty meeting its needs in this area regardless of the general unemployment rate” said John Fili, General Manager.

Interplex Nascal, a leader in the manufacturing of precision stamped products and a division of Interplex Industries, Inc., announced today the opening of a formal program to train new Tool and Die Makers at its facilities in Tustin, California for a limited number of candidates.

A local company with roots in central Orange County dating back to 1969, Interplex Nascal is contributing in a small way towards rebuilding the manufacturing base of our region. Tool and Die making is an essential and respected trade in many sectors of industry. New Tool and Die Makers are developed through apprenticeship, a combination of on the job training, work experience and related classroom study. In recent years little has been done to replenish this vital part of the workforce.

For the past two years Interplex Nascal has been searching to find Tool and Die Makers who have experience in the metal stamping industry. In that two year period they have successfully hired only two (2) new Tool and Die Makers. “Like many employers requiring personnel with highly specialized skills, Interplex Nascal has difficulty meeting its needs in this area regardless of the general unemployment rate” said John Fili, General Manager.

This new program, starting in early 2012, seeks to place individuals with two years of college-level technical training or five years of manufacturing work experience into a highly structured program. The two-year program includes on-the-job training, supplemental classroom education and work experience in a mentoring relationship with senior personnel. Candidates who qualify and enter the program will be provided with a starting set of precision tools which will become their property upon completion. With continued success, trainees will start at a competitive base pay and receive regularly scheduled pay increases.
