Mack Molding wins international manufacturing award

first_imgMack Group,Mack Molding was named a winner of Managing Automation Communications’ prestigious 2011 Progressive Manufacturing 100 Award last week at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, Palm Beach, FL. Mack was recognized for redefining the company as a major North American manufacturer in the new millennium. A decade ago, amidst the throes of a recession that drove major technology OEMs to offshore manufacturing, Mack crafted a new business model that would expand its position as both a contract manufacturer for the medical market, as well as a custom plastic molder of super-large parts. With great strides being made on both of those fronts, Mack has concentrated of late on the third leg of the business model ‘ big, bulky, complex products ‘ that diversify its markets beyond medical and emphasizes its services beyond injection molding. ‘This aspect of our business model drives us toward products that are too large to be manufactured efficiently overseas and too complex to be confidently and expediently managed from offshore locations,’ explains Jeff Somple, president, Mack Molding Northern Operations. Examples include a fully automated self-cleaning commercial milkshake blender, mail sorters and production mail systems, solar-powered municipal trash compactors and recycling systems, RFID inventory management systems, and insect control systems for lawn and garden care. In all instances, Mack’s vertical integration of services, including product development, plastics injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, machining, and total product assembly are called into play. Mack was honored along with a list of blue-ribbon manufacturing companies from around the world, including Caterpillar, Chevron, Coca-Cola, Dow Chemical, Ford, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, and Nestle. ‘These companies have demonstrated an ability to rethink their businesses and apply advanced technologies in innovative ways that manufacturers everywhere would be well served to emulate,’ says David Brousell, a PM100 judge. ‘The PM100 winners this year are role models for the successful manufacturing company of today and in the future.’ About Mack MoldingMack Molding is a leading custom plastics molder and supplier of contract manufacturing services.
