MANUFACTURING DAY 2019 AT WILSON TOOL

Manufacturing Day

Manufacturing Day 2019 proved to be yet another productive and fun event at Wilson Tool International.

On October 4th, 2019, Wilson Tool played host to 136 attendees from local government, businesses and 7 area schools. This year’s group impressed with their enthusiastic and informed attitudes toward the manufacturing industry.

Manufacturing Day is annual outreach event put on by Wilson Tool International, that aims to spark intrigue in the next generation of toolmakers, fabricators and engineers. After a classroom style presentation, given in part by Wilson Tool President, Chris Lawless, students and attendees were invited to take an in-depth tour of our production facilities. Tour leaders gave students a well-rounded image of what a career in manufacturing might look like. And of course, no Manufacturing Day would be complete without a pizza lunch!

GET TO KNOW WILSON TOOL INTERNATIONAL
SUNIA LEE, TOOLING TECHNICIAN – STAMPING

Sunia Lee Headshot

Starting out as part-timer in the shipping department, Sunia Lee worked alongside her sister, Pachia Vang,and quickly earned herself a full-time position. “Within five months I went to full-time, still in shipping, then I got the position of expeditor,” Sunia recalls.

Now, six years later, Sunia is tooling technician with Impax Tooling Solutions®, working directly with customers. Like many members of the Wilson Tool team, Sunia is WTI legacy, with her father, Lue, putting in a twenty-five-year career, and her sister still plugging away with twenty years at Wilson Tool.

“Why not? My dad works here, my sister works here…I’ve been coming to the company picnics since I was a kid.”

As a kid with her mother, Sunia would often join her father for lunch, in the Wilson Tool break room. “It’s surprising how much everything has expanded,” Sunia notes about the growth of the White Bear Lake campus,” it’s expanded this way; it’s expanded that way… it’s great to see twenty years of growth.”

Sunia is passionate about photography. One of her favorite places to photograph is from the tower at White Water State Park, a place her family and friends return to as often as possible for an unplugged getaway. Sunia is a fish keeper, as well as a fan of all things Disney®.
