Mike Smith, Tool & Die Maker
When the boys at MGM decided to extruded their own vinyl profiles 12 years ago, they knew they would need a tool and die guy who could get a tool shop up and running quickly and someone who really understood the process of making tooling. Luckily, they already knew Mike Smith.
As a tool and die maker, Mike and the team maintain the tooling, build new dies & tools for new products and keep the dies tuned. A couple of years ago, Mike was asked to help tune the extrusion tools that are designed in-house.
Mike and his wife of 32 years, Tina, have two adult boys - Brannon, who took after his dad and went into engineering on an MGM scholarship, and Chris, who went in the other direction, and is a host on the SyFy network's Ghost Hunters International.
When Mike isn't at work, he enjoys heading to the woods for some camping and hiking.
What does Mike enjoy most about working at MGM?
"They're just good people here and I enjoy coming into the shop everyday."
