Seven days, two countries, one continent: In mid-September, an 18-member VDWF delegation set out for a one-week trip to explore North America. In Canada and the USA, company representatives of German tool and mold makers gathered fascinating impressions with their overseas colleagues.
The VDWF delegation was headed by its association president, Professor Thomas Seul. To start, his conclusion about the North America trip:

were different, along with all they had in common with the North Americans. Such as the issue of a shortage of skilled specialists: “In Canada as in the USA, the younger generation
shows little interest in the toolmaker profession. At the same time, machines are becoming increasingly complex and difficult to operate there as well,” reports Thomas Seul.
