Did you catch the story that appeared on Fox News on 8/30 about the irony of having high unemployment at a time when manufacturers are having an extremely hard time finding qualified personnel? Check out the video and read the story here.

Give a shout out to the always colorful and charismatic John Berg, marketing director for MGS Mfg. Group, who pulled no punches in his comments about what it takes to compete in the molding market against competitors from so-called lower cost countries. Talk about telling it like it is.  It's all about technology, innovation, speed to market, providing solutions not parts. Take heed my friends. Manufacturing is not dead in the U.S. It helped build our economic machine in the first place, and quite frankly is leading the recovery now.

But manufacturing in the U.S., plastics processing for our purposes, has certainly changed. Change with it.
