MOLD MAKER OF THE YEAR
The Society of Plastics Engineers presented Geoff Luther, owner and president of A-1 Tool Corporation in Melrose Park, Illinois, with the prestigious Mold Maker of the Year Award. “Geoff is very well respected in the mold making community as the leader of one of the largest and most technologically advanced mold shops in the Midwest," says Greg Osborn from Synventive Molding Solutions, who serves as Education Committee Chair for the SPE Mold Technologies Division.
Each year the board of directors of the Moldmaking and Mold Design Division of the SPE selects from its membership, and from nominations at large, individuals who exemplify the role of Mold Maker. Per SPE, this person has shown through years of service to the industry his/her ability to grasp information, adapt to changing technology, and provide career and technical guidance to those in subordinate roles.
Additionally they have been willing to serve their craft by sharing information and experiences on a wide range of topics.
