I am writing regarding the Plastic Globe Awards in the Dec. 17 issue. The award that troubled me the most was your “Good Time to Buy a Press Award.”
I find this award and your description distasteful. Contrary to your opinion on injection molding machine sales representatives, I believe we offer more than slashed prices. Some of us have dedicated our careers to the long-term relationships, customer service and technology required to sell injection molding machines. Slashing prices may make headlines in your magazine, but it isn't the only factor in selling injection molding machines. I would prefer to see my chosen career portrayed in a more positive light.
