MMS Announces 2019 Top Shops Winners
Production Machining’s sister publication, Modern Machine Shop’s annual Top Shops benchmarking survey results include a detailed data analysis report, identification of emerging operational and business metrics, and the unveiling of this year’s four program winners.
The annual survey enables owners and managers of U.S. computer numerical control (CNC) machine shops to compare their operations’ performance and practices against industry leaders. The survey is divided into four primary sections: machining technology, shopfloor practices, business strategies and human resources. An Honors Program winner is chosen for each of these categories. This year’s winners are SDP/SI (Human Resources), Straton Industries (Machining Technology), MetalQuest (Shopfloor Practices) and AceCo Precision (Business Strategies).
“Each year, Honors Program winners are vetted and selected by me from a top-tier benchmarking group established from answers to select survey questions,” says Derek Korn, Modern Machine Shop’s executive editor and technical director for the magazine’s Top Shops benchmarking program and conference. “This year’s honorees demonstrate a dedication to improving manufacturing operations and a willingness to share and learn from others.”
The Top Shop awards will be handed out during the grand reception at the third-annual Modern Machine Shop Top Shops Conference held Sept. 9-11, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The 2019 Honorees will also be part of a panel discussion where they will elaborate on ways they have improved as a shop and grown their business.
