For the second year in a row, an IQMS customer is named Manufacturer
of the Year by the Manufacturing Leadership Council
PASO ROBLES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
ERP software and MES
developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and
relationships, today announced that last week, IQMS customer Plastic
Molding Technology (PMT) was honored with the Manufacturer of the
Year Award (small enterprise) at the Manufacturing
Leadership Summit in Palm Beach, Fla. PMT shared the stage with
large enterprise winner, The Boeing Company, for implementing the most
transformational projects of the competition. This is the second year in
a row that an IQMS customer has taken home the top prize.
PMT received top marks by the Manufacturing Leadership Council for two
business transforming projects. The first was a comprehensive continuous
improvement initiative that included the implementation of the ERP and
MES solution EnterpriseIQ, employee training programs, a new mold
storage system and processes, inventory accuracy improvements and
cost-of-quality initiatives. The second was a multi-dimensional
sustainability project that when combined with the first initiative,
delivered significant and ongoing savings as well as new business.
In addition to PMT, three other IQMS customers were recognized last week
for their outstanding performance. In the Engineering & Production
Technology category, Micro Mold Co., Inc. won for its lights-out,
fully-automated manufacturing workcell initiative and Protoplast, Inc.
was praised for its innovative new injection transfer blow technology.
Additionally, Poly-Cast Plastics (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. was honored in the
Enterprise Technology category for its use of EnterpriseIQ's financial
management modules to maintain rigorous PRC tax standards.
"It is a very proud moment to sit at the Manufacturing Leadership Awards
Gala and see our customers being recognized with (and in some cases
triumphing over) some of the largest, most influential manufacturers in
our nation," said Daniele Fresca, IQMS director of marketing. "As
evenings like last week demonstrate, no matter the type or scope of
their project, IQMS is always willing and able to support our customers
as they compete and succeed."
The Manufacturing Leadership Awards honor companies and individuals who
are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Breakthrough projects
are entered into specific categories and evaluated by a panel of expert
judges. Seven of the Manufacturing Leadership Award categories are for
outstanding projects undertaken and completed by a manufacturing company
and four of the categories recognize the achievements of individual
manufacturing executives. For more information about the 2014
