Curt Moll, retiring chairman and CEO of MTD Products, Inc., will visit campus Monday, July 6. Under Moll's leadership, MTD—a global manufacturing corporation, which produces outdoor power equipment and appliance components—has challenged its U.S. workers to participate in developing strategies to produce top-quality, cost-effective products to position the company against offshore competitors with significantly lower labor costs, and still meet the just-in-time needs of large-volume retailers such as Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Sears. Moll will share his insights with students in TiME's Materials Manufacturing class.
