A CNC turning machine system will decorate the new training and development center
In order to meet the requirements of the modern industry and to prepare future employees optimally, KAMAX presents an entirely new training concept, comprising new professions, new courses of study and extensive investments. As automation has increased sharply in the fields of tool manufacturing and production, training contents such as control technology and programming are gaining importance. That is why four new professions will be trained at KAMAX starting August 2016, including cutting machine operators with specialization in CNC turning machine systems or industrial mechanics with specialization in production engineering. In 2017 three additional career possibilities will be added. Seven new study courses round off the program since this year’s summer.
Further qualification for all employees
To implement the new training program, extensive constructional measures are necessary. The two current training facilities for apprentices will be rebuilt into a larger training and development center, equipped with future-oriented technologies such as a robot training unit and a single-stage press. On their way to industry 4.0, present KAMAX employees will also be further qualified in the new training and development center. Furthermore, the training is supplemented by language trainings and the opportunity to go abroad. “I am proud to say that since shortly all our apprentices enjoy English classes to transcend possible language barriers and to be able to work at our worldwide KAMAX locations after their education”, states Michael Resch, Director Human Resources Operations Germany.
KAMAX L.P. is growing
The first step towards an expansion of KAMAX L.P. has been taken. ...
The first step towards an expansion of KAMAX L.P. has been taken. Recently, KAMAX held the groundbreaking ceremony for a 130,000 square foot addition to the manufacturing and heat treatment buildings. Chief Market Officer Dr. Wolfgang Scheiding and Ashi Uppal, President of KAMAX L.P., took the first cut of the spade. As the Operation in Lapeer is growing in the future, this addition only represents one of several phases of the expansion. Further development is planned to include a new wire processing facility as well as a new administration building.
Furthermore this growth will also lead to an extension of the road system. The executive management team of KAMAX L.P. stated: “We are encouraged to see the support of both the local and state agencies to develop the infrastructure within Lapeer County.” The KAMAX facility will then be directly linked to the Interstate 69. This will improve the traffic efficiencies for the KAMAX customer base and will relieve some of the traffic congestion within the city limits. “KAMAX is making a tremendous economic impact on the Lapeer County with this expansion project”, determined Patricia Lucas, Executive Director of the Lapeer Development Corporation.
