Lewiston, MN January 19, 2016 – PlastiCert, celebrating its 35th year of innovative and quality plastic injection molding design and manufacturing services, has been pronounced a World-Class Processor by Plastics Technology Magazine.
In the January edition of Plastics Technology Magazine, the editors revealed their inaugural group of World-Class Processors. Plastics Technology sent their exclusive benchmarking survey to subscribers in the middle of 2015. Of the companies that responded to this inaugural survey (virtually all of them custom)—Plastics Technology designated 25 World-Class Processors based on 11 different metrics covering operations, business performance, and human resources. Those measures included everything from scrap and on-time delivery rates to employee turnover and sales growth.
“PlastiCert is honored to be among this elite group,” remarked Craig Porter, PlastiCert’s President and Owner. “We have taken great strides identifying those metrics that will help assess ourselves, and then act up on that data. Improvement is a trip and not a destination. Specializing in short and medium volume, we see a great deal of variability on our floors and numerous opportunities for improvement present themselves.”
Performance of the responding companies in 11 different metrics winnowed the field down to a select group that includes injection molders, blow molders, compounders, and extruders of film/sheet and pipe/profiles. The world-class group includes facilities in Mexico and Canada and 11 different states, with multiple firms from California, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
