The Mack Molding team has rolled 12 months of stunning views from the Company’s Headquarters in Arlington, Vt., into one quick video! So if you are not visiting us to find out more about Mack’s contract manufacturing services, as well as injection molded plastic, fabricated metal parts and high-level assemblies, it must be for the vistas! Don’t forget to check out the Mack Mountain Cam for yourself at https://www.mack.com/mack-mountain-cam/. Whether you’re looking to take in the breathtaking scenery of Southern Vermont, or you want to see if there might be snow on the slopes, we’ve got your inside connection – and a five day forecast to boot!
While its legacy is as custom injection molding, today Mack Molding is a vertically integrated product development and manufacturing partner that takes ideas from notes on a napkin through prototyping to manufacturing. For customers who are in that middle spot, Gardner-Mass. based Mack Prototype offers rapid tooling and prototyping, as well as low volume molding and manufacturing. 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. Learn more about the operation in this new video, or come by booth 1709 at MD&M East this week to discover our entire offering – Mack Medical, Mack Molding, Mack Technologies, Mack Prototype and Synectic Engineering – in person. Let us show you how our vertically integrated services can benefit your business throughout the product life cycle!
Late spring brings two traditions to Mack Molding – the return of the interns and housekeeping. To help you learn about the latter, we enlisted RPI’s Margaret Smith, Communications Intern, to create a video highlighting how we keep our facilities looking top notch!

And in thinking about Memorial Day, we would be remiss not to reflect on the brave men and women, and their families, who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to us all. From our Mack family to yours, we offer our deepest gratitude.
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!
