Matt Wardle is the President and CEO of Ogden, Utah’s JD Machine. In this video, he describes ways he uses Top Shops benchmarking data to help build his machining business. He also explains how being named an Honors Program winner a few years ago has positively impacted his business (by winning a new customer no less) and has helped build morale in his shop.

Results from this year’s survey will be presented at our inaugural Top Shops conference, which runs September 5 to 7 in Indianapolis, Indiana. That conference also includes a number of presentations and panels offering ideas for ways you can grow your business, too.
