"In other countries, they have different specialties, from design to die and mold making, to sampling of actual product.
The Department of Trade and Industry noted that recent studies show that the Philippines tool and die industry is "about 3-5 years behind" in development compared to its peers.
That is why our group has been very active in personnel training so that local producers may be able to cope up with the demand in terms of expertise in die and mold making," added Mr. Oliveros.
Die and mold industry and education experts are working to develop special courses on die and mold engineering in order to further develop the industry in the Philippines.
"We're in the process where we are upgrading everything from facilities and equipment. We do benchmark ourselves with countries like Japan, Singapore, Thailand and even Western countries.
