CARR Machine & Tool's Jim Carr Tells All in New Podcast

Jim Carr, President and CEO of CARR Machine & Tool and a second-generation business owner, has launched "my TRUE POSITION," a free podcast on which he shares the details of his business journey.

The podcast title is apropos not only because Carr intends to share his true position on how he feels about growing up in manufacturing, but it also gives a nod to a standard industry term for geometric measuring tolerance. Carr will record from within his 15,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing facility in Elk Grove Village, IL.

"I want to share my authentic experience because I stumbled in so many ways on my own business journey," Carr said. "This will allow me to lift up my community and industry. It will be different from other manufacturing podcasts in that I am not just going to interview people each week. I am going to be open and honest and just put my story out there and talk about the successes and the mistakes."

No stranger to the podcast world, Carr was a co-founder and co-host of the manufacturing podcast "MakingChips" since 2014. On "my TRUE POSITION," he hopes to inspire other manufacturing professionals, equip them with the knowledge to help them make better decisions and solve problems and show them they are not alone on their manufacturing journey.

Carr will invite industry leaders and peers to join him on occasion and intends to cover such topics as:

  • Organic Growth vs. Acquisition: What direction to take?
  • Business Relationships: Filtering who is authentic and who is not
  • Parting ways with a 21-year veteran
  • ACH fraud: It's only a matter of time
  • Continuing in the family business when dad has a girlfriend
  • Selling your manufacturing company: when, what, where and how?
