Menomonee Falls, WI, June 2015, – Dynamic Tool & Design, Inc. is proud to have been selected as the 2015 Leadtime Leader – Honorable Mention winner by MoldMaking Technology. The award recognizes North American mold manufacturers who maintain the highest standards of innovation, efficiency and quality.

“The award is recognition of our commitment to lead the industry in developing new technologies and offering better designs for our customers,” explains David Miller, President.   “Since 1976, Dynamic has designed and built plastic injection molds for the packaging, personal care and healthcare industries. We continually invest in operations and our people to maintain our competitive edge.”

Increasing efficiency and reducing costs are achieved by utilizing robots and lights out manufacturing. “Dynamic also follows a scientific method to ensure a quality mold. We have to make the tool fit the process,” explains Tom Andrews, Plant Supervisor. “We can’t make the process fit the tool.”

Technology is key success but the Dynamic employee is what truly separates the company from the competition. Dynamic Tool & Design is an employee-owned ESOP company. “Giving employees a stake and a say in how things are done helps identify new opportunities for efficiency,” explains Miller. An employee owner culture helps people stay engaged and motivated. Recruiting from local technical colleges and high schools helps Dynamic continually maintain a highly skilled workforce.

Building the highest quality product, on time, and utilizing the latest technology has enabled Dynamic Tool & Design to grow and reach the level of “Leadtime Leader”.

The Leadtime Leader award is awarded by MoldMaking Technology and Progressive Components. Published by Gardner Business Media, MoldMaking Technology is a leading trade publication designed for plastic injection mold manufacturers. Progressive Components develops and distributes components for the production tooling industry.

NPE 2015 – A Success!

Posted on: March 31st, 2015 by Craig Lau

NPE 2015 was a great success! The show features over 2,000 exhibitors and 60,000 attendees in the plastics industry. Held at the Orlando Convention Center, NPE is the place to learn about new technology and equipment. Manufacturers were running step stools, cell phone cases, toys and more. We enjoyed meeting prospective customers as well as connecting with our valued current customers. We look forward to the next NPE show May 7-11, 2018 in Orlando!


Marketing in the Mold Building Industry

Posted on: March 5th, 2015 by Craig Lau

With NPE 2015 just around the corner, we thought it was a good time to add to our literature library. We created two new brochures for the show – a general overview of Dynamic and a Medical market brochure. The brochures look great and highlight the Dynamic brand and capabilities, but yesterday I learned that may not be enough.

Yesterday, I attended a marketing presentation sponsored by Square 2 Marketing. Presentations covered Inbound Marketing and Reality Marketing. Inbound Marketing is a way to capture leads from online resources such as articles and other downloadable content. Today, 6% of companies utilize Inbound Marketing. Reality Marketing considers the customer’s perspectives, opinions, challenges and pains when buying a product or service. I learned a lot from this presentation/workshop and immediately came back to the office to review our literature/website to see how we faired. We are ok, but there is room for improvement to better communicate to our existing and prospective customers.

Dynamic Reality Marketing Status

Customer Perspectives, Opinions – We recently surveyed a select group of our customers and asked them about their experience with Dynamic, our competitors and how we compare. We asked them why they choose to work with Dynamic and what we can do to improve. Our customers told us they work with Dynamic because we provide a quality mold; on-time, and our engineering and sampling are the best in the industry. We beat the competition in levels of customer service, support and response to any issue. The Dynamic mission is to “exceed the expectations of our customers by providing the highest quality product, on-time with responsiveness to the customers needs” so the results were a confirmation that we are executing our mission on a daily basis. We will keep up the good work here.

Customer Challenges and Pains – The biggest challenges for our customers are pricing and lead time. We work hard to be competitive in the market but my goal is to better communicate the “Dynamic Difference” and why working with Dynamic is the best choice for a mold builder. Dynamic customers are confident knowing their mold will be built to exact specification, will be sampled and ready to run once installed. We offer services to our customers such as installation support and on-site training. I will do a better job of communicating this “Dynamic Difference”.
