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.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event – and remember you can find us at Booth No. 2615!

It wouldn’t be the holidays without a festive singalong with the Mack team. So sit back and enjoy the 2017 Mack Carol, “Joy to the Plant!” From our family, to yours, wishing you happy holidays and all the best in 2018.
With cooler temperatures finally settling into the Northeast, it is a perfect time to reflect on the summer fun enjoyed by Mack employees and their families at our northern and southern divisions’ annual picnics!
On Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017, Mack was pleased to host Vermont Governor Phil Scott at the Company’s Headquarters in Arlington, Vt.
Gov. Scott toured the plant and discussed manufacturing in Southern Vermont with Mack Molding President Jeff Somple and Mack Group Chief Financial Officer Florence Belnap. The governor was able to meet several employees while he received a first-hand look at the most exciting projects in the finishing area and observed molding operations.
During the visit, Somple highlighted Mack’s recent growth along with capital investments the Company has made to support the increased activity. This includes the placement of the largest molding press in New England at its Cavendish facility, as well as new lasers and a machining center at HQ.
Somple also emphasized the work Mack is doing to ensure it not only has the capacity, but also the talent, to meet the needs of its customers. He discussed the importance of internal training focused on giving employees the tools they need to be successful, as well as the rewards of a robust internship program that has seen 14 former students joining the Company full-time following in the past two years.
“Hosting Governor Scott was tremendous honor and huge opportunity to show how hard working the people of Southern Vermont are,” Somple said. “Mack continues to be successful, thanks to our wonderful customers, industrious employees and supportive community, but doing business in Vermont requires partnerships. As a former business owner, the governor is keenly aware of this. From showing our young residents why it pays to stay in Vermont to supporting initiatives that benefit the state’s industries, we were excited for the opportunity to share our thoughts and success with Gov. Scott.”
