The 2013 IW Manufacturing Hall of Fame class, like its four predecessors, is a diverse group. This year's eight inductees manage (or managed) companies that make 3-D printing machines; wire and cable; paint; packaging equipment; industrial equipment; trucks; truck engines; and aircraft and aerospace systems.
But their commonalities are more telling than their differences. All eight evince in abundance the qualities that lead to success in manufacturing, among them integrity, passion, and a laser focus on serving their customers, their employees and their communities.
