AMBA has launched its annual Wage and Salary survey! This survey collects and analyzes wage and salary information for over 50 job functions commonly found in mold building operations, helping mold manufacturers benchmark employee wages in an increasingly competitive, global marketplace.  

For those who have completed this survey in the past: due to increased interest in health and other employee benefits, AMBA will survey all benefits questions separately in early 2021.

The report generated from this survey is available at no cost to participating AMBA members. Non-member participants will be able to purchase the report at a discounted rate.
