NTMA’s 6 Must-Read Articles of 2023
1. Bring your dreams to reality
Every small business starts with a dream. At some point, of course, you have to take a break from dreaming and formulate a plan to bring that dream to reality.
But what do you do when you’re stuck in the dream and don’t know how to move forward? How do you develop a plan and follow through?
2. Diversify your capabilities
Specializing in a single product line or relying on a few customers can be risky, so diversification is crucial for the longevity and resilience of machine shops. By preparing for unforeseen challenges, such as market shifts or losing a key customer, machine shops can mitigate risks, drive growth, and improve manufacturing processes, ensuring stable success through changing circumstances.
3. Leverage automation
With skilled professionals retiring and fewer newcomers filling the gap, automation enables shops to maintain high productivity without expanding their workforce. Discover why technology is the great differentiator in keeping American manufacturing jobs alive and how your shop can join this revolution.
4. Unlock the secret to a thriving business
Enhance customer relationships and business growth by adopting a proactive, solutions-oriented approach. You’ll not only meet
your customers’ needs more effectively but also position your shop as a collaborative partner, paving the way for long-term success and a robust client base.
5. Secure your shop’s enduring success
Investing in new technologies is crucial for staying competitive in today’s fast-paced manufacturing world. Explore how cutting-edge advancements can drive comprehensive manufacturing improvements, from efficiency to innovation and growth. Learn how industry leaders leverage technology to stay at the forefront of modern manufacturing.
6. Revolutionize your hiring strategy
What sets your machine shop apart? It’s not your state-of-the-art equipment or superior machining skills but something far more valuable: your people. Learn why investing in your team is the key to thriving in the competitive manufacturing market.
