Welcome to Top Shops!

2020 marks the tenth annual Modern Machine Shop Top Shops benchmarking survey, which highlights the attributes shared by leading North American machining businesses. After fully completing the survey you will receive at a later date a report customized for your shop. The report makes it quick and easy to know where your shop stands compared to the Top Shops benchmarking group and to other shops.

Take advantage of all the benefits of participating in Top Shops! You just need to answer the survey questions and:
  1. Provide your email address to receive a report customized for your shop, showing where your shop is strong, on track, and has opportunities.
  2. Enter your contact info to be part of the Top Shops Honors Program for a chance to be profiled in an upcoming issue of Modern Machine Shop.
  3. Indicate whether or not you want your shop included in the all-new Top Shops Sourcing platform.
  4. Select ‘Submit Responses’ on the final page of the survey.
As always, all responses will remain confidential. If you need to gather data or are otherwise interrupted while completing the survey, you may close and return to it using the same device as many times as you like until you select ‘Submit Responses’ on the final page.
