Allen Tool Phoenix is proud to announce our participation in the New York State Manufacturing Intermediary Apprenticeship Program (NYSMIAP) sponsored by the Manufacturers Association of Central New York. NYSMIAP is an employer-led, public-private pilot program for registered apprentices in manufacturing occupations. The NYSMIAP is a unique business-lead approach targeted at raising the skill levels of incumbent manufacturing workers and creating distinctive career pathways while filling a crucial need within the industry. Our three apprentices began the four-year program for CNC Machinists on June 15th. In addition to daily on the job training, our apprentices are attending OCC for their related instruction. Good luck gentlemen!
P-Tech Job Shadow
ATPI recently held a job shadowing event for Syracuse P-Tech students. P-Tech is a specialized high school partnered with Onondaga Community College for students interested in Engineering or Machining. The students met with different ATPI staff members to see how we program our machines, machine our parts, and inspect our parts. They had some hands on measuring as well. We hope this new P-Tech program will inspire the students to pursue a career in manufacturing.
New Lathe For Our Tool Room
Pictured above is a new lathe purchased for our tool room to help support the CNC Machinery bought last year. This equipment replaces a workhorse that had been in service at ATPI for 25 years.
