FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Mack Molding Co. of Arlington, Vt., is Plastics News’ Processor of the Year, the plastics industry publication announced Feb. 27 during its annual Executive Forum in San Diego.
Mack, which does injection molding, sheet metal fabrication and full product assembly, reinvented itself over the past six years after much of its core business of computer servers and mass storage devices went offshore. Now Mack serves several diverse markets, including medical devices, business equipment, furniture, industrial battery cases, and very large parts for trucks and recreational and utility vehicles.
“I truly believe we won this award because we put the customer first,” says Don Kendall, president and CEO of Mack. “Total Customer Satisfaction is not just a catch phrase at Mack. It is what we measure ourselves by. And when you do that, everything else falls into place. I want to thank our employees for their hard work and dedication to our customers. And I want our customers to know that we greatly appreciate and value their confidence and trust.”
Mack was judged in seven different categories, including financial performance, technological innovation, quality, customer relations, employee relations, environmental record and public service. The judging process included a lengthy application process, as well as an on-site visit by one of the judges.
The other finalists were Berry Plastics Corp. of Evansville, Ind., and Innovative Injection Technologies Inc. of West Des Moines, Iowa. According to statistics from the Society of the Plastics Industry, there are over 11,000 plastics processors in the U.S.
Ernst & Young Corporate Finance Inc. (Canada) co-sponsored the award, and also helped judges analyze the financial performance of the companies.
