MTD Micro Molding, a medical molder and mold maker specializing in extremely small parts, has officially opened its expansion, and it picked a perfect person to honor.
At a May 27 dedication ceremony in Charlton, Mass., MTD Executive Vice President Gary Hulecki unveiled a cornerstone plaque honoring Dennis Tully, MTD's late president and visionary leader who masterminded the expansion before his unexpected passing in 2019.
Tully was 58 when he died of a heart attack in 2019, just weeks before the family company was named Plastics News' Processor of the Year. He was named to the Plastics Hall of Fame in 2020.
"[Dennis] would never tell you what to do or how to do something, but you could always count on him to help you frame the problem and think through the issues you needed to consider before proceeding," Hulecki said.
The exterior was completed in late 2020 and the interior was completed this year.
In addition to increased production space, MTD's expansion provides more personal space for employees and a gym, so "employees can better maintain their well-being," the company said.
The work "allowed us to reach this major milestone for the company and for Dennis' legacy," MTD owner Darlene Tully said.
