What makes your company special to your customers? That is at the heart of MoldMaking Technology’s annual Leadtime Leader Awards program.

This competition was created to share best practices and recognize companies that are leading by example. A Leadtime Leader is a North American mold manufacturer that demonstrates overall innovation, efficiency, quality and commitment within its moldmaking operations.

The Leadtime Leader competition is open to every North American mold manufacturer regardless of its size, capabilities or equipment. It’s all about what you do with what you have. It’s about optimizing your assets to quickly deliver the best molds at fair prices.

A quality mold that is delivered on time is the result of a team of professionals working together. The team relies on a vision that defines company culture and strategy, driving success with a clear purpose.

Your company can benefit just by participating in the competition. After you complete the initial entry form, the application process will lead you through a self-examination of your organization, its workflow and ultimately your results. The efficient, in-depth review will help you see your company through your customers’ eyes, revealing opportunities for improvement.

Winners enjoy a cover photo and feature story in the June issue and online, winners enjoy a feature video filmed at their shop to accompany the article. Winners also get a complimentary 10-foot by 10-foot booth at Amerimold 2020. But most importantly, the industry recognition helps winners build their credibility as an exemplary mold manufacturer.

Candidates are evaluated by a panel of molders and original equipment manufacturers on delivery, sales growth, technology, business strategy, efficiency, training, industry involvement and customer satisfaction.

What makes your company special to your customers? Show the world all you have to offer and build the recognition you and your team deserve.
