M4 Named Small-Medium Sized Manufacturer of the Year
mHUB Chicago and MxD named M4 as the Fourth Revolution Awards ’ Small-Medium Sized Manufacturer of the Year. The ceremony took place on October 2, 2019, at the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago to highlight and celebrate leadership, innovation and achievements of the Midwest’s manufacturing ecosystem. The company states it is honored to receive the award.
The Small-Medium Sized Manufacturer of the Year award recognizes a small or mid-sized manufacturer that has demonstrated its excellence in business practices, innovative processes and productivity enhancements as well as contributions to its local community.
M4 is a design and manufacturing house that makes meaningful products in plastic. As a plastics injection molder, it is redefining what it means to engage in manufacturing. Hiring a full-time industrial designer, Kyle Swen, founding partner of Astro Studios, Inc. and now chief design officer of M4, to launch the design-side of the business was an evolution for both the company and the traditional manufacturing model. It challenges the status quo and sets the company apart as a driver of the fourth revolution.
Last month, mHUB announced M4 as one of the five finalists in the Small-Medium Sized category. The other finalists were Laystrom Manufacturing Co. (Chicago), Pioneer Service Inc. (Addison), Prismier, LLC (Bolingbrook) and United Conveyor Corporation (Waukegan).

Although PERC (Programmable Electric Rotating Cores System) is not a brand-new technology, it warrants a second look as a way for moldmakers to provide another value-added service to their customers.
