Of the 407 shop survey submissions, Delta Research was awarded Modern Machine Shop Magazine's Top Shop Award. The award was based on a number of criteria including the following:

Industries and Customers Served – Serving more than one industry and supporting multiple customers makes for a more competitive company in the long run.

Top Shops Top Shops

1)Machining Technology – Top shops are more likely to use advanced machining equipment than other shops.

2)Shop-floor Practices – Top shops not only setup jobs in nearly half the time of their competitors but they also measure their costs for every step of a job through shop floor costing / enterprise resource planning software.

3)Business Strategies – Knowing where you've been and where you're going are two very different things. Beyond tracking your costs and knowing your customers, understanding your company's strengths and weaknesses as well as seeing the vision for your company and sharing that vision with your employees is what differentiates the average company and a company that is a Top Shop.

4)Human Resources – Top Shops typically pay their employees a little bit more than the industry average. Key employees are incentivized even more.

5)Receiving the award the Modern Machine Shop's Top Shop Award were Delta Research's Bob Sakuta and Tony Werschky who received the award at the 2014 International Machine Tool Show in Chicago, Illinois.
