BCA, ATN ANNOUNCE MANUFACTURERS OF THE YEAR FOR 2019
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Business Council of Alabama and the Alabama Technology Network announced the 2019 Manufacturer of The Year (MOTY) winners during an awards luncheon ceremony held on May 1, 2019 at the Alabama Activity Center.
The MOTY awards recognize Alabama’s manufacturing enterprises that exhibit excellence in leadership, performance, profitability, and workforce relations. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges based on demonstrations of superior performance in customer focus, employee commitment, operating excellence, continuous improvement, profitable growth, and investment in training and retraining.
“The purpose of the annual Manufacturer of the Year Awards is to shine a spotlight on manufacturing excellence and to give the those who have invested in Alabama the acknowledgement and promotion they deserve.” said Katie Boyd Britt, president and CEO of the BCA. “Quite simply, this is an opportunity for the business community to say, ‘job well done!’ to some of Alabama’s most successful industries.”
Since its beginning in 2000, the BCA and ATN award ceremony has attracted Alabama dignitaries and manufacturing leaders to honor companies that are committed to improving Alabama’s economy.
ATN Executive Director Keith Phillips said the companies acknowledged today represent the best in Alabama manufacturing and the use of technology. “For 20 years, it has been an honor to partner with the Business Council of Alabama to provide a platform for Alabama manufacturers and suppliers to share their stories of growth, hard work, and their economic impact to our state,” Phillips said.
