Nominations can be found here here . The award is open to manufacturing plants in the United States. The plant must be involved in making and measuring, testing or inspecting discrete parts. We’re looking for plants that have applied world-class quality technology, equipment, services and techniques that result in reducing scrap, rework, warranty or manufacturing costs, improved productivity or cycle time, increased capacity or improved adherence to quality standards.

Anyone can nominate a plant-employees, suppliers and casual observers are welcome to make submissions. Deadline for nomination forms is November 1, 2011. All nomination forms must include a list of equipment, and brand, used in the manufacturing facility.

Nominations without this list will be disqualified.

The Quality Plant of the Year will be announced at the 2012 Quality Measurement Conference. In addition, each winning plant will be profiled in the March 2012 issue of Quality Magazine. The winning plants must be available for interviews and photographs in November/December 2011.
