Congratulations to Cashmere Molding
Cashmere Molding Inc., an injection molder in Woodinville, Wash., was named 2010 Midsized Manufacturer of the Year by Seattle Business magazine. The award honors the company for strengthening and growing the manufacturing industry in Washington state over the last year. "Even with the manufacturing industry facing new challenges such as increased competition with China, rising energy and raw-material costs and the current economic crisis, Cashmere has still been successful," President Greg Herlin said in a news release. Over the last five years, Cashmere has seen its sales rise an average of 60 percent each year, with a 10 percent increase last year in the down economy. Last year the company hired 20 employees and brought five customers that were having products molded in China back to the United States "If our prices are competitive, then we will get the work back in this country because our customer service and our engineers are unmatched," Herlin said. "I'm out to prove that American manufacturing can be competitive again."
