Last year's 2015 Leadtime Leader Honorable Mention is still going strong, and celebrating its 40-year anniversary.



Last year's 2015 Leadtime Leader Honorable Mention, Dynamic Tool & Design, Inc., is still going strong, and celebrating its 40-year anniversary. This global plastic injection mold builder was founded in 1976 and has grown because of its continual investment in technology and employees. 

“Over the past 40 years Dynamic has looked to enhance the process of building molds by incorporating the latest technologies in machining and automation to maximize output, minimize leadtimes and maintain the quality our customers require. We also continue to invest heavily in the development of our employees through training and our apprenticeship programs. We must constantly be preparing for the future of the company,” explains David Miller, President.

The company celebrated the 40 year anniversary on April 9 at a party held at the Pabst Brewery and honored John Lau and Irv Fischer. Since its beginning, Dynamic Tool has provided injection molding solutions to the packaging, personal care and healthcare industries by designing and building custom injection molds including multi-shot molds, rotary stack molds and unscrewing molds.

“Dynamic Tool’s employees are a driving factor in why the company has been in business for 40 years. Founders, John Lau and Irv Fischer, recognized that and to reward the employees as well as to ensure the company’s continuation into the future, Dynamic reorganized as an employee owned company in 2010. Now each employee has a vested interest in the success of the company,” explains Craig Lau, Vice President. “We have grown from 2 to 70 employees.”
