Why Shops Should Apply for Leadtime Leader
MoldMaking Technology’s Leadtime Leader Award has been an ongoing award since 2003. All these years later, it is a prestigious award given only to moldmakers who excel. Be the shop that wins.
As someone who has been able to be a part of the moldmaking community for years, I have had the rewarding experience of seeing firsthand how hard moldmakers work. Every year I talk to shops that have put in the extra hours, dealt with challenges, and overcome hardships, and every year I get the chance to see some of those shops send me their incredible stories in the form of the Leadtime Leader entry form.
The winner of the Leadtime Leader Award receives a feature in MoldMaking Technology, a video feature on moldmakingtechnology.com, a targeted advertising program with Plastics Technology, a complimentary 10’ x 10’ booth space at Amerimold 2021 in Rosemont, IL, and more. While all of these (free!) opportunities are fantastic, it means more to me to be able to listen and learn about companies that put their heart into moldmaking. It isn’t just a passion, it is so much more.
