Event Details

Facility Tour

October 7, 2016 10:00am - 11:00am

You use them every day at home and school. You've seen them on the shelves of Office Max and Target. The plastic storage bin may seem like a simple everyday item, but it's a manufacturing wonder! THOUSANDS of hours and people went into designing, engineering, making, and assembling that "simple" storage box. Can you imagine what your house or classroom would look like without storage boxes? M-E-S-S-Y. It would be a teacher's worst nightmare!

To celebrate National Manufacturing Day, A-1 Tool Corporation is excited to open our doors and engage your students! We've got a whole tour planned to walk you through the meticulous (yet fascinating!) process of plastic injection molding. Your students will meet our gang of engineers, tool designers, mold makers and CNC Machinists. Even our proud owner Geoff Luther is eager to make an appearance!

Want some additional materials to build excitement? Review and share our videos with your classrooms about the amazing careers manufacturing (& A-1 Tool has to offer!)

About A-1 Tool Corporation & Skill Scout Present: The Making of the Storage Box

Since 1946, A-1 Tool Corp has built a strong reputation for quality injection molds. Big projects, both in terms of the mold size, and the number of molds, are an A-1 strong suit. No job is too small or too large. Complex molds, including stack and toggle molds, are all common at A-1 Tool Corporation.
