How Beaumont utilizes the AIM Institute to improve our workforce
Over the last 25 years, the Beaumont Family of Companies has grown and evolved to continue fulfilling the needs of the injection molding industry. One common denominator has remained the same: our people and investing in employee education.
Today, the Beaumont Family of Companies celebrates its 25th anniversary!
Beaumont Technologies, Inc. was founded April 17, 1998 under the name “Beaumont Runner Technologies, Inc.” to commercialize a new plastic melt conditioning technology: the MeltFlipper®. John Beaumont, then a professor in the Plastics Engineering Technology program at Penn State Erie, invented and developed MeltFlipper® after identifying the root cause of product quality and manufacturing issues related to uneven mold filling. Over the last 25 years, the company has grown from one patent and a couple of employees to now four business units and over 100 employees. Take a look at some reflections shared by long term members of the Beaumont Family of Companies, starting with John Beaumont himself:
John Beaumont’s book, Runner and Gating Design Handbook: Tools for Successful Injection Molding, is a globally known industry staple– and it just got more accessible. Already published in both English and German, Runner and Gating Design Handbook is now available in the Czech language thanks to the work of Jan Svoboda, CEO of JAN SVOBODA s.r.o.
Recently, Beaumont brought on a new team member: Zach Morton, Research and Development Engineer. Zach is tasked with handling various research projects, under John Beaumont, for the American Injection Molding Institute (AIM) and Beaumont companies. Although he will be working on a variety of projects, Zach’s current focus will be on the advancement of Therma-Flo™.
