Submissions are OPEN!

“Quality” plants deserve special recognition. That’s why Quality Magazine is presenting its 2016 Quality Plant of the Year Award.

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, improve productivity or cycle time, increase capacity or improve adherence to quality standards.

The Quality Plant of the Year award recognizes both a small plant of 250 or fewer employees and a large plant of more than 250 employees for its outstanding achievements in quality. Anyone can nominate a plant—employees, suppliers and casual observers are welcome to make submissions.

Deadline for nomination forms is November 1, 2015. 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 profiled in the March 2014 issue of Quality. The winning plants must be available for interviews and photographs in December 2015 / January 2016.
