Nominations Open For The Newly Enhanced 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Awards

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan | Manufacturing Leadership Community (MLC), announced today nominations are open for the 2014 Manufacturing Leadership (ML) Awards, formerly known as the Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards.

Frost & Sullivan | MLC also announced several exciting enhancements to the ML Awards program.

In their tenth year, the ML Awards are the premier program for honoring manufacturers that have successfully undertaken transformational business projects in a variety of categories, including product, supply chain, customer value, and enterprise technology leadership.

The ML Awards also celebrate the outstanding career achievements of manufacturing leaders who have built best-in-class companies and helped advance their industries.

Recipients of the ML Awards receive global recognition as manufacturing industry leaders, and are honored at the Manufacturing Leadership Summit, June 3-5 2014 at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Fla. Past ML Awards company honorees include 3M, Boeing Co., Coca-Cola, Eaton Corporation, Ford Motor Co., General Electric Co., General Motors Co., IBM, L'Oreal USA, Motorola, Nalco, and Raytheon.

"Broadening the ML Awards name parallels our global expansion of the program," explained Frost & Sullivan | Manufacturing Leadership Community President Heather Holst-Knudsen. "Now that we've merged with Frost & Sullivan, we are accelerating the growth of the ML Awards, honoring manufacturing innovators globally. This ultimately enables us to highlight more than just 100 manufacturing leaders, because we believe manufacturers can and should learn from the best, wherever they may be regionally."

Along with rebranding the ML Awards, the MLC updated and expanded the categories in which nominations are submitted. Manufacturers and their technology partners can submit ML Award nominations to the following categories:

2014 Project/Company Awards:

  • Customer Value Leadership
  • Engineering & Production Technology Leadership
  • Enterprise Technology Leadership
  • Industry Advocacy Leadership
  • Operational Leadership
  • Product Leadership
  • Supply Chain Leadership
  • Sustainability Leadership
  • Workplace Leadership

2014 Individual Achievement Awards:
