Michael’s contributions

“Michael has played a key role in several key projects at The Raymond Corp.,” said Jay Holt, senior operations manager at The Raymond Corp. “Recently, he assisted and led a project to transition a major welding operation from another plant to the Raymond plant in Greene, N.Y. Bambino mentors and trains other departments in methods to improve flow while maintaining Raymond’s high-quality standards. Speaking to his ability to efficiently direct and provide continuous improvement, his team leads the Welding Department in efficiency practices, which has translated to the lowest defects (0.0009 defects per unit) and best on-time delivery (99.7%) at Raymond.”

Why a career in manufacturing?

“My mom worked in the HR department at a manufacturing company in upstate New York, and I’ve always been intrigued by the industry and the ability to be a part of creating something. Eventually, I started working at a manufacturing plant in college. I found the work so rewarding, I decided to put my education on hold to concentrate on a career in manufacturing. Also, as a kid, I couldn’t get enough of taking apart toys and cars and rebuilding them. The idea of integrating this ability into a career played a big part in my decision to work in manufacturing.”

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
