Greetings to everyone in the die casting world! We are getting closer to the end of the year-long tunnel that we have had to endure. Because Midland Technologies is based in Minnesota, we are looking forward to spring, and the warm summer months – a time of year we always look forward to. As I am writing this in mid-March, the snow had all but melted, yet I am right now watching the snow fall, with up to 2 inches by the time it is done!
From the business side of things, we were anticipating a slow start to the year, with business gradually picking up as companies have gained more confidence in the vaccine rollout. The good news is that our prediction is holding true and with each passing week we are seeing more orders, both from current customers as well as new ones. We are thankful that the activity has begun to pick up, and we are ready to accept the challenge to design, manufacture, quality check and ship those products out the door!
Stay safe and healthy,
Mark Steen, General Manager
As we have done over the last couple of years, we will be implementing Summer Hours from the end of May to the end of September. This means that we will have limited hours on Fridays during those months. This year, it will have greater meaning, as we will be able to spend more time with our families and friends as vaccinations continue to roll out over the next few months.
We will continue to monitor email and respond to inquiries. If there is an urgent need, feel free to contact Steve Kreun (763-453-2234), or Mark Steen (612-297-9550).
