Welcome to Design World’s Leadership in Engineering for 2023. Now in our 16th year, we want your vote!
Any time a manufacturer listens to and partners with its customers, its engineers will design and build the kind of products that can accelerate innovation. Engineers want to solve problems, whether with custom or off-the-shelf solutions — but they want their products to be reliable. After all, no one would build himself or herself an “almost good enough” product … so why should an average product ever be acceptable for a customer?
Each year, Design World celebrates those outstanding manufacturers that were voted the best in their category by engineers in the field and industry peers. These companies take great pride in their products and provide stellar customer service.
The products described in the following pages were designed and manufactured for use in many categories, which include advanced materials, digital manufacturing, electrical, fastening and joining, fluid power, mechanical, mechatronics, motion control, networks, software, switches, and test and measurement.
It has been a challenging few years for all businesses, including manufacturers, as they deal with continued supply chain issues, workforce shortages, and a global slowdown. But this year’s leadership competitors show how resilient manufacturers can be. These companies represent the best and brightest, and they reflect the continued vision, integrity, and creativity of their design (and manufacturing) engineers. I think the most noteworthy aspect of this recognition is that you, our readers, are able to select the winning engineers and companies with the votes you cast throughout the year.
“Once again, this year’s Leadership companies reflect the vision, integrity, and creativity of their engineers by presenting such outstanding products and services. They continue to innovate and provide new solutions for our engineering audience. I think the most noteworthy aspect of this recognition is that you, our readers, are able to select the winning companies with the votes you cast throughout the year.” – Paul J.
