Dynamic Group in Plastics Technology (PT) Magazine
‘True to the adjective in its name, Dynamic Group has been characterized by constant change, activity and progress over its nearly five decades as a medical molder and mold maker.
‘Now in its second generation after it was founded in 1977 as a toolmaking shop by Joe McGillivray’s father Peter and his partner David Kalina in the latter’s basement, Dynamic Group continues to involve and improve, including starting and then closing a separate quick-turn and prototype tooling business. There’s always been a focus on medical and molding throughout, whether for sampling tools or running production. Leaning into listening to its employees’ insights about the business (including through the CI program) has brought about fundamental, positive change, according to McGillivray.
Continuous Improvements at Dynamic Group Means Constant Evolution
“We’ve had thousands and thousands and thousands of improvements,” McGillivray says. “The company looks completely different because the smartest people and the people that know the most about the business are making the changes on their own.”’
Not only did we enjoy demonstrating our extensive knowledge and medical molding and moldmaking capabilities with Plastics Technology, we also had an opportunity to share some of our culture that sets us apart. This company culture that we've developed over the years enables all employees to be involved with pushing the company forward with ongoing innovation.
'While there are certainly music lovers at the Minnesota-based injection molder and moldmaker, the reason “The Ace of Spades” might be playing isn’t about rock appreciation, in this case, it’s about the company’s continuous improvement (CI) plan. “When someone suggests an improvement,” Joe McGillivray, Dynamic’s CEO and owner, explains, “an audio clip that represents their team would play over the speaker, so everybody else in the company knew Team Motörhead had put another suggestion in.”'
“The company looks completely different because the smartest people and the people that know the most about the business are making the changes on their own.”
