PRD, Inc. Wins 2017 Indiana Manufacturing Excellence Awards

The Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP), in partnership with Purdue Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), has awarded PRD, Inc. first place in the Indiana Manufacturing Excellence Awards. Second place went to Decatur Plastic Products and third went to TASUS.

"All of us at PRD, Inc. are truly honored and grateful for this award.  It is great to see the effort of all our employees over the past few years payoff and be recognized," stated Mark Murphy, Vice President and General Manager in Springville based PRD, Inc.

The Manufacturing Excellence Awards were created to showcase best-in-class plastics processors throughout the state of Indiana. The award was brought to the industry by the MAPP association and Purdue’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP).  The award ceremony will take place at the 2017 MAPP Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference in Indianapolis on October 12.

To apply, processors needed to complete an application and self-assessment.  These were then reviewed and scored by a team made up of MAPP representatives, industry leaders and Purdue MEP industry experts. Top organizations were selected to undergo a one-day, in-person and on-site assessment that evaluated all areas of the organization including markets, suppliers, quality, maintenance, continuous improvement and more.
