Kudos from EnerSys
EnerSys, the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, honored Mack with its Supplier Performance Award last month for overall quality, service, delivery, and responsiveness in addressing issues expeditiously. Nominated by EnerSys’ Hays, Kansas, plant, Mack was one of only two molders recognized out of a pool of 55 from North America that supply the company. Mack injection molds containers for EnerSys’ lead-acid battery applications, many of which require highly cosmetic, clear finishes. A long-term supplier to the industry, Mack has been providing molding, annealing, testing, and silk screening services to the industrial battery market for over 50 years.
