Each year as part of mfgCON, North Carolina’s premier Manufacturing Conference, the North Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NCMEP) recognizes manufacturing excellence across North Carolina with the Leadership in Manufacturing Awards. The Leadership in Manufacturing Awards seek to recognize manufacturing facilities that deliver truly exceptional performance across five categories:
- Developing Markets
- Continuous Improvement
- Advanced Talent Management
- Sustainable Manufacturing
Manufacturers that are located in North Carolina and have fewer than 500 employees are eligible for the awards. The programs or initiatives related to the area of consideration must have been established for a minimum of two years.
