Manufacturing Marvels, a show on Fox Business News Network, featured Eimo Technologies in July in a video segment that focused on “world class decorative injection molding” production in its three Vicksburg manufacturing plants.
The two-minute video showed the production facilities in Vicksburg, the quality of its product, the employees and some of the interior areas as different products were manufactured. It emphasized the superior look and texture that clients demand in the molding products and demonstrated the quality that Eimo produces.
The company produces decorative molding for the automotive, consumer and medical industries and is one of the largest employers in Vicksburg.
“The producers contacted us only four weeks ago,” said Gary Hallam, operations manager at Eimo. “They have a very streamlined process. The timeline is actually quite amazing in retrospect.” Here’s how it came about:
Hallam received a call from Bob May, the producer of Manufacturing Marvels on June 27. He is located in Dallas. He stated they were going to do a segment on decorative injection molders and Eimo was a candidate. Eimo signed the contract the next day and the first draft of the script was submitted: A two-minute video with a script of 257 words maximum. A final revision of the script was approved by Eimo on June 29. Filming at Eimo with a professional photographer from Detroit took place on July 12. The first draft of the video was received by Eimo six days later. Final revisions were approved by Eimo on July 20. The video then aired on Fox Business Network on Tuesday, July 25.
