about ameritech die & mold
Ameritech Die and Mold was founded in 1985 by Ronald Wozny, Richard Wozny, and Steven Rotman. Recognizing the need for skilled trades and moldmaking in the Carolinas, the partners moved South from Michigan and Ohio. The partners built the company with CNC as a standard. This helped to sustain a high level of efficiency, accuracy, and the ability to run unattended manufacturing. When the name Ameritech was mentioned, everyone began to know that it stood for quality.
In 1995, Ameritech joined a consortium of 5 larger manufacturing companies that recognized the need for a strong Apprenticeship program, and the idea of Apprenticeship 2000 came to life. The very heart and soul of a young, vibrant, energetic group of people became the cornerstone to be able to grow the company while giving the “toolmaker of tomorrow” the ability to learn the trade. See www.apprenticeship2000.com for more information on this exciting program.
In 2000, Steve bought out his partners. As global competition began, lower cost tooling became a key to survival. In order to keep new mold builds from moving offshore, Ameritech’s management developed processes and systems to create a lean environment to reduce cost without sacrificing quality or engineering. Clients respected the value given to them and a strong customer base allowed Ameritech to continue to thrive. Investment in technology, accurate program management and scheduling continued to create high quality at a competitive cost.
In 2004 the opportunity came to purchase the assets of Pinnacle Mold in Ormond Beach FL. Ameritech Die & Mold South (www.amdiemoldsouth.com) was born! The management of “South” worked closely with the NC facility to ensure the same quality and attention to detail was included in every endeavor. In 2009, the company received its AS9100 B Quality certification. In addition, they hired a strong candidate that knew the military and aerospace industry well, and Ameritech South diversified into another new business area.
Through each change, Ameritech has only grown stronger and more prepared to survive the issues of world competition. We are confident that our business plan, financial independence and strong desire to achieve world class proficiencies will continue to keep us at the forefront of mold manufacturing. If you are in need of world class engineering solutions, accurate mold manufacturing techniques, and on time deliveries, then Ameritech is the mold company that you have been searching for!
