A new report touting the highest job gain in three years has President Obama encouraged, despite stagnate unemployment rates. With over 16,000 of these jobs in the manufacturing sector, this is particularly good news for tool and die makers, who, as highlighted in this month's Feature Article, have faced incredible challenges over these tough years.

The people holding the purse strings also agree with the president. The nation's purchasing and supply executives say economic growth is going to continue throughout 2010, particularly for manufacturers.

Companies like Mold Craft, Inc. (Willernie, MN) that chose to invest in automation and technology during the heart of the recession are now reaping the rewards of the upswing. Many that sat on the fence waiting to see what would happen can still get in on some of the action by using the gradual economic bounce back as a convenient time to purchase equipment/software and train employees.

Rezmin Tool and Die is an example of a die shop that is using its investment in software and machine tools to combat overseas competition and thrive with the ability to offer lower prices.
