This award program recognizes excellence in manufacturing by honoring those who make a positive impact in their community and in their industry. In addition to celebrating our manufacturing community, attendees will hear exceptional stories of world-class leaders and learn practices they can apply in their own business.

Manufacturers change the public’s perception of manufacturing each time they recognize its supporters — industry leaders, policymakers, educators, and manufacturing supporters — and their contributions to the state. Now you can celebrate excellence in manufacturing by honoring the individuals who make a positive impact in their community and in their industry. MMA proudly invites you to be part of our annual showcase of the manufacturing industry — the 2019 MFG Excellence Awards.

Register online to spend an evening of celebration with manufacturing’s very best.

  • Walk the red carpet with Award winners, anniversary members and special guests
  • Network with top manufacturing leaders and industry supporters
  • Celebrate manufacturing excellence, large and small, with the presentation of individual and company awards (see Award Categories for details)
  • Watch the reveal of the “Coolest Thing Made in Michigan” People’s Choice Award live onstage

From start to finish, the 2018 MFG Excellence Awards on 11/8/18 in East Lansing was a night for manufacturers to build their legacy and inspire others to go one step further. Learn more about the 2018 MFG Excellence Awards in the November issue of MiMfg Magazine.
