The ATN and the BCA are proud to present the Alabama Manufacturer of the Year Awards that honor individuals and companies that bring uncompromising excellence to Alabama manufacturing.
Since 2000, the Alabama Manufacturer of the Year Awards program is a prestigious annual celebration attended by Alabama dignitaries and manufacturing leaders.
These annual awards recognize the state’s top manufacturers for their accomplishments. By applying for the award, manufacturers convey their story of financial growth, manufacturing leadership, market leadership, leadership development, and workforce enhancement.
Awards are presented in three categories based on the number of employees and revenue.
In addition, an Emerging Manufacturer of the Year Award may be presented to a company that has been in operation for five or fewer years and has demonstrated superior performance.
You too can be part of this annual celebration of manufacturing excellence. Apply for the prestigious award to: share your story, recognize the hard work and dedication of your employees, promote your significant accomplishments, highlight corporate citizenship, join the ranks of other notable manufacturers, receive well-deserved news coverage, and help increase public awareness about the strength and economic significance of Alabama’s manufacturing community.
MOTY awards are selected in three categories based on the number of employees – 1 to 99 employees in the small manufacturer category, 100 to 399 employees in the medium manufacturer category, and 400 or more employees in the large manufacturer category.
The 2017 MOTY winners were Mercedes-Benz U.S. International Inc. in Vance in the Large Manufacturer of the Year category; LINE-X LLC in Huntsville in the Medium Manufacturer of the Year category; and Central States Manufacturing Inc. in Jasper in the Small Manufacturer of the Year category.
By applying, manufacturers convey their story of financial growth, manufacturing leadership, market leadership, workforce enhancement, and leadership development. Financial information is held in the strictest confidence.
Finalists are selected by an impartial panel and winners will be announced at the awards’ luncheon.
Join the ATN and the BCA on April 18, 2018, as we recognize and celebrate for the 19th time manufacturing excellence at the 2018 Alabama Manufacturer of the Year Awards luncheon.
