Catherine Bailey Recognized With Women In Manufacturing STEP Award

Catherine Bailey, Plant Manager of Modine Manufacturing Company’s Trenton, Missouri facility, was recently recognized by The Manufacturing Institute, Deloitte, University of Phoenix, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers with a Women in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Award for her excellence and leadership in manufacturing. Ms. Bailey joins 121 other woman honorees, representing all levels of manufacturing from the factory floor to the C Suite.

“We are thrilled that Cathy’s contributions to Modine were recognized by this important new initiative,” said Thomas A. Burke, Modine’s President and CEO. Cathy has been with Modine’s Trenton, Missouri facility for 29 years, starting in accounting positions and ultimately rising to the level of Plant Manager in 2000. In this position, Cathy is responsible for all aspects of the facility’s operations, from employee relations to plant financials to operational performance. Under her leadership, Modine’s sales out of the Trenton facility have nearly doubled and now comfortably exceed $100 million. Burke added, “Cathy is a recognized and respected leader within Modine and in her local community. This STEP award acknowledges Cathy’s hard work, dedication and constant pursuit of excellence in the critical field of manufacturing.”

“These 122 women are the faces of exciting careers in manufacturing,” said Jennifer McNelly, president, The Manufacturing Institute. “We chose to honor these women because they each made significant achievements in manufacturing through positive impact on their company and the industry as a whole.”

The STEP Awards are part of the larger STEP Ahead initiative launched by The Manufacturing Institute, Deloitte, University of Phoenix, and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, to examine and promote the role of women in the manufacturing industry through recognition, research, and best practices for attracting, advancing, and retaining strong female talent.

“The STEP Ahead initiative was founded to change perceptions of the manufacturing industry and create new opportunities for women in the sector,” said Latondra Newton, group vice president at Toyota Motor North America, Inc. and chairwoman of the STEP Ahead initiative. “This initiative is the call for action to transform the face of today's manufacturing talent and ensure that women can contribute to the future of this industry.”

A 2011 survey from Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute found that nearly 70 percent of American manufacturing companies have a moderate to severe shortage of available, qualified workers. Manufacturing companies cannot fill as many as 600,000 skilled positions, even as unemployment numbers hover at historically high levels. Additionally, labor statistics show that women are underrepresented in the manufacturing workforce and in manufacturing leadership ranks — a situation that must be reversed to preserve and grow the industry.
