Attention: Excellence Required

April 12, 2011
Do your manufacturing practices drive stellar performances? If yes, then enter your your manufacturing plant in IndustryWeek's 2011 Best Plants competition.

Does your facility excel in manufacturing carpeting, or cereal, or steel doors, or chemicals, or another value-added product? Do your manufacturing practices drive stellar performances? If yes, then enter your manufacturing plant in IndustryWeek's 2011 Best Plants competition. IndustryWeek is now accepting application requests for its annual salute to outstanding manufacturing facilities in North America.

The IW Best Plants program annually recognizes North American manufacturing facilities that are on the leading edge of efforts to increase competitiveness, enhance customer satisfaction, and create stimulating and rewarding work environments. The winners' stories also serve to encourage other manufacturers to adopt the world-class practices and improvement strategies of the annual honorees. Past and present winners include Nordson, Landis+Gyr, Cargill, Autoliv and Bunge, among others.
