2014 Manufacturing Day Events – Join In
September 24, 2014
October is nearly here, marking not only the changing of leaves and the onset of crisper nights, but also the start of Manufacturing Month.
It’s hard to believe the nationally recognized movement was instituted just two years ago. With over 1,100 events being hosted across the United States on October 3rd (this year’s official Manufacturing Day), it’s clear we have quite a dedicated manufacturing community – one that demonstrates tremendous enthusiasm when it comes to opening its doors to educate others about the industry.
CONNSTEP is proud to support Manufacturing Month by spreading the word about upcoming events in Connecticut. We know of two CONNSTEP clients, Dymotek and The Marion Manufacturing Company, that are hosting open houses on October 3 and invite you to take a tour of their facilities. What better way to learn about the industry firsthand than by visiting these two dynamic manufacturers!
Dymotek, an injection molding manufacturer, will host two separate events on October 3rd. One will be at their headquarters in Ellington, where they’ve operated for over 20 years. The other will be a grand opening event at their newest location in Somers.
The Marion Manufacturing Company will be hosting an open house at their facility in Cheshire where visitors can learn about the intricacies of the metal stamping process.
We hope you all enjoy this year’s events. Feel free to spread the word!

“CONNSTEP solved a huge problem for us and helped us bring our delivery rate to 100%. As a direct result of that, we have been awarded with an increase in business which, ultimately, will also benefit (our supplier) Har-Conn.”
“I see great value in the new experiences and perspectives CONNSTEP brings to our business, at reasonable prices. They’re not like consultants, they’re like partners in the business – willing to roll up their sleeves and help.”
“CONNSTEP has proved to be a tremendous resource for ESI. CONNSTEP has helped us to adapt to today’s marketplace and remain a quality minded, competitive global player. Our ISO/TS16949 implementation process was efficient and rewarding. I look forward to our future projects with CONNSTEP.”
“CONNSTEP worked with FuelCell Energy to educate and facilitate Lean initiatives and to help meet our needs to establish an overall production improvement plan. This plan has been utilized over a period of time as a ‘guiding light’ to spur numerous improvements that dramatically reduced our product cost.”
“CONNSTEP is a valuable partner to Hologic, providing the expertise and ‘outside eyes’ everyone needs to keep their continuous improvement on track. We are now well-positioned on a dynamic growth path and look forward to a long-term relationship with CONNSTEP.”
“Our experience working with CONNSTEP has brought us benefits we never expected. It’s a great team to work with!”
“The goals of the team were to reduce manufacturing lead-time, reduce floor space utilized, and increase worker productivity. All the goals were met. CONNSTEP helped us to better compete.”
“The Business Growth Program is working well for us. We enhanced our website following the meetings to improve our SEO and become more visible to search engines. The segment on negotiating … promoted changes in our thinking and improved how we interact with customers. The mentoring between sessions was helpful in boosting our progress.”
