Annual Program Aims to Assist Machining Businesses and Adds Sourcing Platform
(PRUnderground) January 25th, 2021
Today, Modern Machine Shop, the country’s leading media brand for manufacturing, opened the 2021 edition of the Top Shops benchmarking survey. The survey is conducted in partnership with Gardner Intelligence, the preeminent source of economic information for goods manufacturing. Data collected from machine shops and contract manufacturers across the country is compiled and analyzed to determine what technologies and practices are spurring success in the community. Each shop that participates is given a custom report showing where their business is excelling and identifying opportunities for improvement.
“As manufacturing recovers from the disruptions caused by the coronavirus, capitalizing on opportunity is going to be more important than ever,” says Steve Kline, Chief Data Officer. “By participating in the 2021 Top Shops Survey, these businesses will be able to identify strategies to remain competitive.”
New this year, the survey coincides with the rollout of the new Top Shops Sourcing platform. The service aims to connect buyers with shops that can meet their needs. Every company that takes the survey will receive a free listing. All participants are also eligible to receive a Top Shops designation, and those responding by March 30th are automatically entered to be a Top Shops honoree.
“The new Top Shops Sourcing Platform allows shops to present their people, processes and performance expertise to qualified buyers,” says Dave Necessary, Top Shops Sourcing Director. “By giving potential buyers a look at what makes a shop unique, businesses can compete on more than price.”
