“How do you know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been?”

“How do you know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been?”


That quote courtesy of Craig Porter, president and owner of custom injection molder PlastiCert Inc., Lewiston, Minn. PlastiCert was among Plastics Technology’s inaugural group of 25 World-Class Processors based on their responses to the 2015 World-Class Processor survey.


I interviewed Porter following his company’s selection and the above quote was in response to my asking him why his company tracks all the different production metrics covered in our survey. As he elaborated, the ultimate goal for PlastiCert was to “establish a baseline of how you perform to standard.”


We’re once again seeking participants in that survey, click here to take it today, with the goal of helping individual companies, and the industry at large, establish that baseline and track performance.


Approximately 50 questions, with segments devoted to profile info, operational metrics, human resources, and business/processing strategies, the anonymous survey’s complete results will only be shared with companies that participate. Take some time today and figure out where you’ve been and where you’re headed
