In fact the Mack team is in the final stages of planning its annual pilgrimage to Anaheim, Calif., for Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) West, taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center Feb 5-7, 2019.

The world’s largest collection of medtech suppliers brings more than 20,000 design and manufacturing professionals – from engineers to executives – together for three days of sourcing, networking and education. Mack’s is rolling out the Company’s A-game for the big show, and the senior management and sales teams are excited to introduce attendees to our capabilities as a full-service contract manufacturer with specialties in plastics design, prototyping, molding, sheet metal fabrication, machining and turnkey system assembly at Booth No. 2835!

The Mack Team celebrates the Holidays with a new Mack Carol for 2018 – Working at Mack Molding Company – to the tune of Winter Wonderland! From our family, to yours, wishing you happy holidays and all the best in 2019.
Each year on Halloween the employees of Mack Molding let their inner ghouls loose by donning costumes and carving pumpkins. Their efforts are rewarded with monetary prizes for group themes and individual categories for scariest, funniest and most original. Similarly our pumpkin carvers can net a little cash for the scariest, funniest and most creative works. And if that wasn’t enough, everyone gets to enjoy some free fresh made Vermont apple cider and cider donuts! Don’t miss out on the fun, if working with this frightfully exciting team sounds good to you visit our job board.
On Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018, Mack was pleased to host U.S Rep. Peter Welch at the Company’s Headquarters in Arlington, Vt.
Rep. Welch toured the plant and received a business update from Mack Vice President of Procurement Marc Colety and Headquarters Plant Manager Rich Hornby. During the visit, Colety highlighted Mack’s recent growth, the strength of the Company’s presence in the Green Mountain State and its global reach. The Congressman also received a first-hand look at the new work in the Company’s finishing area, observed operations in the molding and tool rooms, and was briefed on capital equipment investments that have been made in the metals and machining departments to support recent growth in business activity.
Brad Williams, of Lake George, N.Y., is a senior at Clarkson University in Potsdam, N.Y., and a 2018 Mack summer intern. Brad has been working in the Company’s purchasing department with Supply Chain Manager Eric White and Medical Supply Chain Manager John Preiser.
“The goal of any ‘good’ internship is one that provides value to both employer and employee. I think we accomplished that with Brad this summer,” Eric said. “It was clear from the beginning that his curriculum prepared him for many of the day to day challenges we face. We had a huge amount of new product introduction activities this summer, and Brad played a significant role in helping out the purchasing department.”
It is a perfect fit for Brad, who is majoring in global supply chain management. He has spent the summer researching current topics and issues regarding supply chains, as well as filling out component quality requirements (CQR) paperwork, cutting purchase orders (POs) and debt memos.
“The work I’ve been doing this summer relates directly to my major,” Brad noted. “I now understand the importance of staying up to date and well versed on any findings in my field. If you don’t, you begin to fall behind.”
“Mack really cares about the work its interns are doing,” he said. “I’ve been working on projects that are giving me real experience and are expanding my knowledge. I’m also glad I get to spend my free time hiking and swimming, and playing my guitar.”
After graduating in December of this year, Brad plans to work in a supply chain buyer position.
