The Village Companies is a family-owned group of companies in three lines of business: manufacturing services, amusement products & services, and consumer products. Combining each of these market focuses gives The Village a unique perspective and pool of resources to develop innovative solutions, products, and experiences. We are 400+ employees strong across eight companies. Among them are MCL Industries, Bay Tek Entertainment, and Optima Associates.
In 2020, The Village began to consolidate more than ten independently-operated businesses into eight companies under The Village banner. As a result of that consolidation, along with Covid-related business constraints, The Village has addressed problems such as capacity, product mix, rising cost of goods, and customer satisfaction as well as employee recruitment and retention. Join us for a discussion with The Village senior leadership team on how they have been addressing these issues and the success they’ve had along the way, including the “Find the 50” recruiting and retention campaign. We’ll also tour the MCL and Bay Tek facilities, finishing with some fun in the Bay Tek game room!
