Phillips Joins Precision Metalforming Association

CLEVELAND, – The Precision Metalforming Association this week announced the hiring of Dean Phillips as director of technical training. Phillips will lead the association’s efforts to expand its technical training offerings to help the industry continue to build a high-caliber workforce.

“Amid the ongoing manufacturing skills gap, workforce development remains a top priority for PMA,” says PMA President David Klotz. “The demand for the association’s in-plant training services and technical seminars continues to grow, and I am excited to welcome Dean to the staff to manage our technical programs, develop additional training topics and bring more subject matter experts on board to meet our industry’s needs.”

Before joining PMA, Phillips was a production enhancement engineer at Link Systems in Nashville, Tenn. He also is the founder of Longevity Industries, a manufacturing media company, and the host of PMA’s Destiny of Manufacturing podcast that features interviews with industry thought leaders who provide insights into the future of manufacturing.

Phillips succeeds Peter Ulintz who is retiring. Ulintz will continue working with PMA as a consultant, presenting at PMA seminars and conducting in-plant training on his topics of expertise.”
