Lew Weiss and Tim Grady, co-hosts of the globally heard Manufacturing Talk Radio program interviewed Cutler about his 20 years in covering the manufacturing sector. Manufacturing Talk Radio interviewed manufacturing journalist Thomas R. Cutler.
On the show, Cutler shared how the 7000+ member Manufacturing Media Consortium came into existence 20 years ago and how authoring 1000 feature articles annually about manufacturing and issues facing manufacturers is his passion. Cutler pointed out that while much of the focus in the manufacturing sector is on large publicly traded organizations, he finds the story of small and mid-sized manufacturers the trend for the next decade. Cutler shared, “These founder owner manufacturers, often with less than 100 employees, are hard-working, dedicated, and excellent. They are the unsung heroes. Sadly, they have not done a good job telling their remarkable stories and we are committed to changing that omission. Training small manufacturers how to be lean, efficient, and increase productivity is far easier than teaching them to communicate their unique value proposition.”
Cutler also noted, “As more and more Baby-boomer founder owners are looking for an exit strategy over the next few years, it is particularly important to make up for lost time and start sharing the successes. It is like staging a house for sale; manufacturers that are less known are seen as less attractive to potential buyers. We honor the hard work and amazing products by amplifying those achievements and telling their stories.”
