Ever Needed A Machine Serviced That You Sold Outside Of Your Area? We've got your solution!
Many people have felt the same way. Because you don't always do business in your immediate area, occasions arise where a machine you sold needs service, installation or inspection in a geographical area that you are not familiar with.
The Technical Services Directory features companies recommended by MDNA Member Firms who specialize in different Technical Services in the machinery industry, such as CNC programming, hydraulics repair, presses, etc.
Your recommendations of people you know in your area (including yourself) will be what creates this directory — which we hope will be another invaluable resource for our members. Plus, each specialty listing is FREE!
For even more exposure in this publication, consider purchasing a display advertisement.
Please go here to download the form and send your recommendations to the MDNA via fax or email by August 16th, 2019. This directory will also list the recommending MDNA Member Firm, so please fill out the form completely. We will then contact them and let them know they've been recommended by you.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution — the melding of the physical and digital worlds — has been on a gradual march for some time. Yet, recently, it seems to have reached a healthy jog.
Indeed, 4IR tech is changing how we produce things, track the supply chain, add intelligence to our products and enlist the kind of labor force we need to carry all of this out.

What a difference a month can make. In June, U.S. payrolls grew by 224,000 jobs, a sharp rebound from 75,000 new hires in May, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. June's rate of unemployment ticked up to 3.7% from May's 3.6%.
The jobless rates for major worker groups, the number of long-term unemployed persons and labor-force participation rate remained nearly the same in June from May, the BLS reported.
New digital technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things offer huge potential for manufacturers. With AI and advanced analytics to identify patterns and trends in the wealth of data generated by the IoT, the barriers between operational technology and information technology are breaking down.
A well-functioning team of employees is critical to any organization’s success. As all plant managers know, however, conflict is simply part of the job, which makes conflict resolution a critical skill for leadership. Unfortunately, conflict may not always be confronted in the healthiest of ways.

The Boeing 737 Max 8 airplane model was the most common plane flying the friendly skies — until recently. After several high-profile crashes killing hundreds of people, this model has been withdrawn from use so it can undergo an upgrade with new safety features for its alert system, which is rumored to have contributed to the crashes. Costing American Airlines $185 million in the second quarter, this aviation development has sent more than ripples through financial markets and manufacturing hubs.
Allison Clift-Jennings writes: Depending on who you talk to, it isn’t surprising to hear anecdotal reports or official surveys that show the decline of human trust in government and institutions on a large scale. If you are lucky, like I am, you have a strong circle of family members, close friends and colleagues that you can always count on. Fortunately, those individuals keep me grounded and hopeful despite big picture trends.
