Aro Metal Stamping Certified as WBE

Thursday, August 4, 2016
Aro Metal Stamping, Inc., Roselle, IL, has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Center–Chicago, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council. The certification process included an in-depth review of the metal stampings and assemblies business as well as a site inspection. Though women comprise 47 percent of the U.S. workforce, they hold only 27 percent of manufacturing jobs. Aro Metal Stamping is an exception, as 50 percent of its workforce is female.
Erica Wiegel, president of Aro Metal Stamping, was invited to participate as a panelist in the first-ever Championing Women in Manufacturing event held on June 3 in Chicago. The purpose of this event was to connect women who work in the manufacturing field, in order to promote manufacturing as a viable career option and to promote a connected female manufacturing workforce.
At the event, Wiegel shared her advice for women in manufacturing: “Find a mentor, join groups, volunteer, ask questions and never be afraid to make mistakes.” She also offered insights earned during her career at ARO and formerly Wiegel Tool Works, saying, “In manufacturing, you must innovate to grow and you must grow to survive.”
