Pacon Mfg, Inc Awarded Top Machine Shop Honor
Pacon Mfg, Inc named Top Shop winner for Shopfloor Practices by Modern Machine Shop magazine. Award recognizes PACON’s Precision Machining 4.0® manufacturing process, a Digital-to-Physical lean manufacturing implementation adopting Industry 4.0 technologies.

Livermore, California – Pacon Mfg, Inc has been named one of four Honors Program winners in association with Modern Machine Shop’s annual Top Shops benchmarking survey.

Modern Machine Shop offers this annual survey to enable its audience — owners and managers of U.S. computer numerical control (CNC) machine shops — to compare their operations’ performance and practices against industry leaders. The survey is divided into four primary sections: machining technology, shopfloor practices, business strategies and human resources. An Honors Program winner is chosen for each of these categories, and Pacon Mfg, Inc was named 2020 Honors Program winner for Shopfloor Practices.

“Each year, Honors Program winners are vetted and selected by me from a top-tier benchmarking group established from answers to select survey questions,” says Matt Danford, Modern Machine Shop’s senior editor. “Pacon stood out for a digitalized, lean manufacturing process that begins with a common selection of cutting tools and fixtures for its automated five-axis machining centers.”

“I am immensely proud of the team for achieving our vision of Precision Machining 4.0® and for the Top Shop Honoree recognition by Modern Machine Shop,” said Steve McClure, President and CEO of Pacon Mfg, Inc. “PACON’s Precision Machining 4.0 achieves Digital-to-Physical manufacturing through our operationally comprehensive implementation of lean manufacturing principles with Industry 4.0 technologies to produce lower cost, quality precision machined components for both prototype and production.”

Pacon Mfg, Inc will also be part of Modern Machine Shop’s “Shop Talk” educational series on Tuesday October 13. Running each Tuesday in October through IMTS spark, the program dives into the Top Shops data to identify key success drivers for job shops and offers insight from shop owners and Top Shops Honorees on how they have improved as a shop and grown their business.
