Every day I try to come across the coolest thing that day at NPE and write about it. Today's winner is a mold running in a Sumitomo machine at the Canon Virginia Inc. (Newport News, VA) booth (W-3717) that molds yo-yos to give away to NPE show attendees. Canon Virginia, like many mold companies, is always needing skilled employees. And like many moldmaking firms, it decided the only way to get the skilled workers it needs is to provide the training. That led Canon Virginia to begin its own apprenticeship program, in which five employees are enrolled currently. The company employs 60 people in mold manufacturing.
