MAPP Client Testimonials
MAPP membership success stories from plastic industry executives.
|My company has been a MAPP Member since 2003 and the decision to join has positively impacted our profitability in more ways than I can count. Not only have we gained a ton of leverage on the purchases we make which translates into savings, but we have also made significant strides at improving our company by using the Benchmarking information that MAPP provides to us. This is a great organization!|
Mike Walter, Vice President and General Managers
|My company belongs to MAPP for one reason...it pays! Last year alone, my company realized 5 figure savings by using MAPP's purchasing leverage. But more importantly, we used MAPP's Technical Training to significantly improve the skill sets of our employees. With all of this said, I still gained even more through the networking contacts I made and with the insight my mangement team has gained by using MAPP's plastics benchmarking information and improvement programs. |
Matt Hlavin, Vice President
|MAPP is an amazing organization! I posted a request for help in finding a mudd base just before 5:00 PM on Thursday evening. I started receiving replies almost immediately. When I checked my e-mail the next morning I was relieved to see that someone had what I needed. My emergency was over. What could have been a disaster with one of my customers was completely avoided because of the MAPP network. It is wonderful how MAPP members unselfishly respond to the needs of their peers. MAPP is truly a trade association that helps it members and members who help each other.|
Lindsey Hahn, President
|We've taken advantage of of one of the MAPP Corporate Partner, Beaumont Technologies. In a recent case, Beaumont helped us to drill down to the nitty-gritty aspects of the whole part design for a new prospect. After consulting with Beaumont, we attached some special services to our proposal — flow simulation, stress analysis, cool, and warp analysis. In advance, we were able to review and document the evolution of what it was going to take to make a great part. Beaumont Technologies was right there with us to present the information to that customer to demonstrate the value so that we could secure the business.
Ben Harp, COO
|MAPP is quite simply an exciting organization that provides tremendous value to its plastics manufacturing Members. As a company owner, I am very careful about where I invest my time and resources and being involved with MAPP has paid big dividends. We are in search of world class organizations who want to become active in MAPP as these entities will extract the greatest value from what we offer!|

Plastic Components, Inc.
|“We selected SIGMASOFT® in 2010 after completing a three-way comparison between the major players in polymer simulation software. SIGMA was the only one to consider temperate soak of the injection mold over time, as opposed to competitor packages which assume a static temperature. SIGMA also considered the unique thermal characteristics of both mold components and over-molded components. The results were clear; only SIGMA’s model correlated astonishingly close to the actual molded part and proved to be the superior technology for truly accurate, mold, pack, fill, and warp simulation.”|
Eric Paules, VP, Operations
Crescent Industries, Inc.
|We joined MAPP because we thought that the organization could help us reach more companies with our message of greater profits through scrap and downtime reduction. Little did we expect that MAPP members, through the forum on the MAPP website, would be helping us resolve an urgent packaging problem that we faced. After looking into a suggestion from a member, we found a way to solve our packaging supply problem, improve the appearance of our product, and save up to $30,000 / year while doing so! Thank you, MAPP!
Joseph Serell , Vice President
|I reached out to MAPP for help on an issue and they immediately went to work and got me resources. I know that I can always count on MAPP when I have an industry-specific question or need.|
Phil Katen, President

Troy Nix, Executive Director
|"The pricing with CDW has been in effect for a month or so now, works great, and is saving us a good deal of money. We just bought a server and SAVED OVER $1400.00!!! I believe we madd a commitment to CDW on an amount of money our group intended to spend a year, that is what our pricing is based on. I am curious if everyone is aware of the program, how it works, how to use the website, and if they are in fact using the program. It benefits all of us to take advantage of the program."|
