The 2019 Top Shops survey is live and will remain so until the end of February. Modern Machine Shop’s annual survey is said to enable shops of all types and sizes to see how they compare with leading U.S. machining businesses along the categories of machining technology, shopfloor practices, business strategies and human resources/workforce development. This year marks the ninth edition of the business benchmarking survey. 

Readers may go to survey.mmsonline.com/topshops to complete the survey. All responses remain confidential.

Those who complete the survey receive a free custom report comparing their responses to all participants, providing a performance summary for respondents’ companies. This report also provides metrics showing in what ways the respondents’ shops are comparatively strong and in what ways they could improve, relative to the other survey respondents. 

Top Shops includes an Honors Program that highlights successful participating shops in each of the four survey categories. These shops are then profiled in Modern Machine Shop, both in print and online. Winners also receive a package of prizes. 

In order to make the survey attractive to more machining businesses, particularly those which cannot disclose financial information, 2019’s edition of Top Shops does not ask for specific financial figures, but rather percentages (for example, net income per gross sales, annual sales growth rate, etc.). 

Questions can be sent to Derek Korn, executive editor, at dkorn@mmsonline.com.
