Each year, the Leadtime Leader Award is presented to a mold builder who demonstrates excellence in mold manufacturing. MoldMaking Technology emphasizes that the award is not just about lead times; it’s about what you do with what you have. Longtime sponsor Progressive Components of Wauconda, IL will once again sponsor the award and ceremony.
This year’s award was presented during Amerimold Connects, a remote tradeshow event produced by MMT’s parent company Gardner Business Media. Next year’s award will be presented live at Amerimold 2021 in Rosemont, IL. Details on how to submit a shop’s application to receive next year’s award can be found here.
Continued investment in new technologies and automation has enabled this moldmaker to maintain shorter lead times no matter how large or complex the mold build.
A commitment to total automation and education earns this one-stop shop an A+ - and an Honorable Mention in MoldMaking Technology magazine's Leadtime Leader competition.
This mold manufacturer was rebuilt with an emphasis on core values and a “productionized” moldmaking strategy designed to reduce lead times.
