Like our previous Top Shops benchmarking surveys, this year’s fourth-annual survey is divided into four main categories: machining equipment, shopfloor practices, business strategies and human resources. And again for this year, we’ll vet and select participating shops to be Honors Program winners for each category. Those four shops will be profiled in an upcoming issue of Modern Machine Shop.

This year’s online survey is still live and can be accessed here. Read this article to learn more about this year’s survey, and consider participating not only for the intel you’ll receive, but also for the chance to get a little exposure in Modern.
