We are proud to say Mack and some of its former interns turned full-time employees were featured in the Wall Street Journal article, “Small Business Thinks Big About Recruiting: Employers in a tight job market are offering vacation money to new recruits, bolstering internships, scouting new locations.”
Mack prides itself on giving its interns tangible work examples for their resumes while helping them build their professional network and employment skills – not to mention allowing students to have a measurable impact on a $350 million company. Interns are assigned a key project that has been vetted by senior management, and at the end of the program are invited to present their work to senior staff. Throughout the program interns are also have access to Mack’s significant recreational and fitness spaces, educational lunch and learns and exposure to the many facets of Mack’s business, including the company’s facilities. While the majority of Mack’s interns are engineering students fulfilling roles on our manufacturing, engineering and customer program teams, several of the Company’s departments host students, including Human Resources, Finance, Purchasing, Sales and Communications – meaning there is tremendous opportunity for majors of any kind.
It has been an extremely rewarding return on the Company’s workforce development efforts, while bringing new energy and ideas to the business. In the last two years 15 former interns have returned to Mack in full-time positions!

SERVICE SPOTLIGHT – FROM INCEPTION TO PRODUCTION
While its roots are in custom injection molding, today Mack Molding is a vertically integrated product development and manufacturing partner that can help take ideas from inception through prototyping to manufacturing.
A customer’s journey can begin anywhere within Mack’s portfolio of services, including Milford, Conn.-based Synectic Medical Product Development. Founded in 1981, it focuses on design, research, development, and manufacturing of medical devices and consumer products. Synectic has built specialties in design engineering, creating intellectual property, pre-clinical testing, and manufacturing. It designs for clinical relevance, manufacturability, ergonomics, and cost efficiency.
For those customers who are little farther along, Mack Prototype in Gardner, Mass., offers rapid tooling and prototyping, as well as low volume molding. The 75,000 square foot facility is perfect for verifying part design and function before investing in tooling. With its CNC machining, fused deposition modeling (FDM), stereolithography, polyurethane molding, extensive model finishing operations, tooling and small-part molding, Mack Proto also is uniquely positioned to create workable units for customers, events or regulatory approval.
Once the product is ready for manufacturing, it can move into one of several of Mack’s manufacturing facilities located on the East Coast. For clients who have not already been working with a Mack company, the engineers in the Application Development Center (ADC) at the Mack’s Vermont Headquarters are ready to review products for functionality, cosmetics, processability, manufacturability, ease of assembly, cost, time-to-market, tooling options and more.
Whether you are interested in Mack Medical, Mack Molding, Mack Technologies, Mack Prototype or Synectic Engineering, the design function is part of a total product development solution geared toward reducing cost and time-to-market and our vertically integrated services have been organized to benefit your business throughout the product life cycle.
If you would like to schedule a specific meeting time in our booth, please contact your business development manager, or Joan Magrath, Vice President of Sales & Engineering, at email@example.com or (802) 375-0312.
