Online Training Success for Hatch Stamping Co.

Among the beneficiaries of Precision Metalforming Association’s (PMA’s) METALFORM EDU online training program: Hatch Stamping Co. and its 1300-plus associates operating out of 13 manufacturing and technology centers, and warehouses. With operations in Michigan, Tennessee, Mexico, China and Europe, Hatch Stamping supports the automotive industry via the use of stamping presses, weld cells, robots, assembly cells, and wire and tube forming equipment to produce roofing, fuel, chassis, interior, seating, alternative-mobility products, and braking parts and systems to automotive OEMs, Tier Ones and Tier Twos. While its core competency is highly engineered metal stampings, the manufacturer also performs design and engineering, tool and die builds, prototyping, welding, and assembly.

“We needed to find a training alternative to not only sitting people in a classroom but one that provides options for our team. Online options give employees flexibility to fit training into their schedules, whether inside or outside of work. In-class learning doesn't allow that. And, everyone receives the same training, so it’s standardized, unlike what may happen with different instructors conducting training in different locations.”
