Lippert Components’ Plant 113 in Bradenton, Fla., won a statewide honor for manufacturing excellence.
The plant was one of three recipients of the Florida Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence Award, Lippert said in a statement. The award is organized by the FloridaMakes Network and Florida Sterling Council.
The Bradenton plant produces canvas, upholstery and shade systems for the Taylor Made and SureShade brands.
The facility “most certainly demonstrated high performance, specifically in the area of leadership and culture,” said Phil Centonze, director of performance assessment at the FloridaMakes Network. “Our examiners observed their strengths in the development of positive leadership competencies and behaviors, and a climate that contributes to a positive culture, clear communication and focus on the customer.”
More than 60 manufacturers were nominated for the award.
