TigerStop has launched Tiger Shop, a weekly blog that aims to empower manufacturers to be globally competitive. The new blog will include information and recommendations on “best practices” for growth and efficiency and will include news, how-to-guides, industry insights and forecasts. Tiger Shop will be published each Tuesday following the inaugural entry posted on January 13, 2016.

Tiger Shop will include articles on technologies that increase shop efficiency, guides for adding automation and lean principals, and it will include stories of successful practices from TigerStop customers in the wood, metal and plastic industries. Content will come from within the company as well as from some notable guest bloggers and will focus on building a successful business that can compete globally and source locally.

“Now, more than ever, you need to be smart, and work more efficiently with what you have,” said Spencer Dick, TigerStop founder and CEO. “We are here to share best practices, educational materials, and advice from the front lines. And most importantly, to learn with you.”

Tiger Shop blog posts will be shared on multiple platforms including social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Future blog topics will include: “How to cut costs from your supplier” and “Wood cost projections for 2016”.
TigerStop was founded in 1994 by Spencer Dick, who as the owner of a thriving manufacturing business, became frustrated with the inherent inefficiencies of his machine operators stopping to reset and recalibrate whenever they were cutting material to various lengths. Spencer also noticed that regardless of how carefully material was measured, the end results were always of slightly different dimensions. He founded TigerStop to automate the cutting process so that exact and accurate parts, whether wood, metal or plastic, would result each and every time.
