Is it Your Turn to be in the Spotlight?
MoldMaking Technology’s Leadtime Leader Awards were created to honor North American mold manufacturers who best demonstrate overall innovation, efficiency, quality and commitment within their moldmaking operations. By taking the time to gather the information about your shop necessary to enter this competition, you will develop a concrete document that details your shop’s achievements, business levels and future plans—and that’s just for starters. If you want to know what this award really means, read what our 2013 winners said about their participation.
“Often we are so focused on the day-to-day activities of running a business that we don’t think much about all of the things that we’ve done over the years to create and sustain a successful business. In retrospect, filling out the questionnaire forced us to consider all the various components of our success, including the adoption and implementation of new technologies; customer service; continual education, training and cross-training of employees; our sales/marketing efforts; and involvement in our industry in ways that help to make it better and stronger. We believe that receipt of the Leadtime Leader Award is recognition from our peers of a ‘job well done,’ and we want to thank everyone involved in the process.”—Jerry Seidelman, Tech Mold Inc., Winner
“The entire Micro Mold team is proud and extremely honored to have been named the 2013 Leadtime Leader: Honorable Mention. We found the process to be an introspective one, which yielded valuable insights into the internal day-to-day operations at Micro Mold that we have subsequently incorporated into our strategic plan as we seek to continue to improve upon our position within the tooling and plastics industry.” Ryan Katen, Micro Mold, Honorable Mention
