PODCAST: A 3-in-1 Force in Mold Manufacturing Looks for Problems
This mold manufacturer considers itself an engineering company with a focus on people and solving problems. In this episode of The Manufacturing Alliance, we dissect how three companies operate as one to provide creative solutions to complex manufacturing challenges.
The mission of Minnesota-based Custom Mold & Design, Paradigme Engineering and Teamvantage is to help customers develop products, not just new molds. This effort involves 320 people across three facilities all involved in ultra-precision part and mold work for implants, surgical tools, pacemaker programmers, diagnostic equipment, hospital bed components and chemotherapy delivery systems. How the team is able to accomplish all of this made for an interesting discussion during this episode of The Manufacturing Alliance Podcast with the company’s VP Lester Jones and Vice President of Sales Tom Caron.
