This speed junkie is determined to use teamwork to make better decisions, and it’s working. Tony May is the vice president of business development for engineering-driven mold builder Pyramid Mold & Tool located in Rancho Cucamonga, California. which focuses on complex, multicavity tools. Tony sat down with me during an episode of The Manufacturing Alliance Podcast to discuss what the company is up to today when it comes to its workforce, workflow, technology investment and marketing strategies.

Here’s a glimpse at the conversation to pique your interest:  

  • Connection to the National Hot Rod Association
  • Our company goal is “We’ll Help You Keep Yours?”
  • Participate and make a difference
  • Complaining is not allowed
  • Present a problem with a solution
  • Working on lean because inefficiencies are popping up
  • We are quick, flexible, nimble
  • I see things on the road  … robotics, automation … but we all need to understand how it all works together to implement appropriately
  • Pushing change
  • I’m so far from what I used to do on the shop floor, so I HAVE to listen to my people.
  • Medical moldmaking
  • We build a lot of molds for Mexico
  • Do not mix language with communication skills and intelligence
  • Laser engraving as a lifesaver
  • Biggest challenge is our fluctuation of work so they are looking for resources for noncritical work
