    Incremental Improvements, Lasting Results

    Shannon Wetzel, Managing Editor - August 22, 2018

    At AFS Corporate Member AB&I Foundry (Oakland, California), the walls do talk. The exterior of the McWane company’s plant, stretching across nearly an entire block, memorializes the history and people who worked there in a vast, colorful mural. The founder’s face and other past leaders’ faces are there, but so are the faces of machine operators, maintenance crew, and HR staff. One of the final panels depicts a large hole blasted through the wall to show a painting of the operations inside.

    AB&I general manager Michael Lowe said it symbolized the company’s decision to open up more to the surrounding neighborhood.    

    “To run a foundry in this modern era, you have to be open to the community, and create a community for your vendors, customers, and each and every team member,” Lowe said.

    Early Career Ambassadors Offer Their Insights — The East Bay Advanced Manufacturing Partnership

    About this time last year, EBAMP collaborated with the California Community Colleges, the Manufacturing Institute, and the NAM to launch the Bay Area chapter of the Dream it. Do it. network.

    Once the steering committee chose to move forward with the Ambassador program as its initial foray, we piqued the interests of manufacturers across the region to participate in the program in order to connect with students in nearby schools. With support from AMTAC and the region’s Workforce Boards, we kicked off the effort in February (blog post).

    Since then, seventeen Ambassadors from five companies have interacted with over 650 students, 3 dozen educators, and others through classroom discussions and career fairs in Martinez, Pittsburg, Clayton, Oakland, San Lorenzo, and Hayward. Two Ambassadors even came to speak to fellow manufacturers and other attendees at an EBAMP meeting early in the spring.
