Greenville Tool & Die Company
Pathway: Engineering, Manufacturing & Industrial Technology
Address: 1215 S. Lafayette Street
  Greenville, MI  48838
Focus Career: Machine Tool Designers
  Tool & Die Makers
Event Time:

6:30pm - 8:00pm

  Session Closed!

Greenville Tool & Die Company is a designer and builder of high quality metal stamping dies (or tooling) primarily for the making of automobile parts.  These dies are used to make parts for most major automobile manufacturers worldwide.
Greenville Tool & Die was formed in 1946 and until recently was a privately held corporation.  The company is now a 100% employee owned ESOP corporation. 

The two foremost career opportunities offered at Greenville Tool & Die are Tool and Die Maker and Tool and Die Designer.  Each requires completion of a 4-year company sponsored and U.S. Dept. of Labor registered apprenticeship training program.  A specific and formal program of on-the-job training in conjunction with more than 30 credit hours of related instruction from Montcalm Community College is required.  The company pays the tuition and fees for this coursework for apprentices in good standing.  Tool and Die Maker is a hands on career position in the plant arena building the stamping dies to very close tolerances many to within thousands of an inch.  Tool and Die Designers use the latest CAD software (CATIA) to design the dies.  The company has a few individuals trained in both expertise.

Offshoot opportunities from these two career paths include CNC Machinists, CNC Tool Pathers, Computer Programmers, and IT personnel.  Most of the company’s supervisory and management staff are “grown from within.”

The Cooperative Vocational Education Program or “Co-op” has been the company’s most important source of future employees since the 1950’s.  Entry level candidates should possess a strong math background, computer familiarity, and good mechanical aptitude, teamwork skills, and soft skills.

High skills offering comparably high wages.  The industry is forecasted to have a shortage of skilled entry level candidates in the future.

Similar to the other tool & die type companies throughout the county, Greenville Tool & Die Company offers an apprenticeship program with Montcalm Community College.  These apprenticeship programs offer the employee to earn a competitive wage while also attended a fully paid college education.

What started as a hobby of restoring old cars became a new career for Mick Bellows.  He was the director of the parts warehouse for White Consolidated Industries when they decided to move the warehouse to North Carolina.  After flying back and forth for a few years, Mick decided to change careers.  Mick and his wife, Linda, purchased the “old Russell’s Airport” building from Richard Russell and Doug Russell in 1988.  In January of 1989, MTB Auto and Body officially opened its doors for business at this sight.  The MTB stands for Mick’s initials, Michael Thomas Bellows. 

Sadly in June of 1993 Mick passed away from cancer.  But he had some great workers on board that kept the place going.  In August of 1993 one of the employees, Larry McKeown, purchased the business from Linda.  Larry has continued to expand the business and take care of its customers in the same fashion as Mick did.  Mick would be proud! 

Learn about careers in vehicle body and collision repair from business owner Larry McKeown who has more than 30 years of experience.  He will give you a personal, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be an expert in the field.  Learn about environmental regulations, compliance and legal requirements, and industry standards.
