Ten Years Worth of Leadtime Leaders
What’s it worth to participate? Let’s just ask last year’s winners:
“Moldmaking today isn’t what it used to be; today it takes a global strategy and a technology-driven philosophy. You have to be doing something specialized and be the best at whatever it is that you do. The Leadtime Leader Award has opened up a lot of doors for UTM. It has also made us aware that we are on the right track, but that we must keep charging to be the best in our market while maintaining a global vision into the future.” Scott Phipps, United Mold and Tool (Easley, SC),
Large Shop Winner
“The Leadtime Leader award and corresponding article allowed us to showcase our capabilities and gain exposure on a national level. Recently, a local potential client called us asking us for a tour of our facility because they saw the article/award in MoldMaking Technology magazine. That potential client has now been converted into an actual customer.” Rebecca Ford, Mold-Tech, Inc., (Albertville, MN), Small Shop Winner
“As a Leadtime Leader the exposure we have received in the trade journals and at the amerimold show highlighting our name in front of prospective and existing customers has been great. We have been able to generate new leads and reinforce to our existing customers our commitment to providing a quality product in a timeline that is measured as an industry leader.” Tim Atwood, MSI Mold Builders (Cedar Rapids, IA), Large Honorable Mention
“The best benefit we have received so far since being named a Leadtime Leader is the internal pride of our group. There seems to be a little more bounce in people’s step and the enthusiasm is definitely up a notch or two.” Rich Martin, JM Mold South (Easley, SC), Small Honorable Mention
Now it’s your shop’s turn to be considered. Showcase your company’s outstanding processes and innovations by participating in MoldMaking Technology’s 10th annual Leadtime Leader Awards, which honor outstanding North American mold manufacturers who best demonstrate overall innovation, efficiency, quality and commitment within their moldmaking operations while raising the bar in terms of mold engineering, building, repair and management.
