The New Face of Blue Collar. Written by MPTadmin, January 30th, 2012 For years, the media has told us manufacturing is dead in the U.S. But hundreds of American companies are sharpening their competitive edge with a new kind of, highly technical blue collar worker. This inspiring short video profiles what’s happening at Greenville, SC-based ADEX Machining Technologies. Rather than just operate a machine, the employee programs it and also acts as machinist and quality control engineer. The result is a workforce that’s leaner and more adaptable to changes in the production process. Stories like ADEX are emerging everywhere. The American manufacturing landscape is alive again, driven by smarter processes and a new class of exceptionally talented workers. At Master Power Transmission, we congratulate ADEX for being at the forefront of this new wave of competitiveness in American industry. Watch the video here.
