When metal fabricator Shickel Corp. sought to boost the overall skill level of its employee base in the face of a more competitive business environment, it went back to school. More specifically, it sought the local community college to help craft a curriculum and implement a class structure to deliver the improved math and shop skills it desired.
Since its inception, Amada America, Inc. has provided manufacturers with innovative, productivity-enhancing sheet metal machines, including both fiber and CO2 lasers, turret punch presses, press brakes, automation systems, and software. We accomplish this by carefully listening to the voice of our customers and engineering machine solutions that solve their sheet metal fabrication needs. See us at FABTECH Booth S901.
