MasterCraft Boats was named one of the 2015 IndustryWeek Best Plants, an award that honors operational excellence at manufacturing facilities across North America.

For more than two decades, the IndustryWeek Best Plants award has recognized companies that implemented strategies to increase competitiveness, enhance customer satisfaction and foster a stimulating work environment.

The goal is for other companies to emulate those practices.

U.S.-based manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Lockheed Martin and Toyota previously have won the honor.

“MasterCraft is honored to earn the 2015 IndustryWeek Best Plants award and be recognized among these elite manufacturing facilities,” MasterCraft president and CEO Terry McNew said in a statement.

“Across the company, we continue to set new benchmarks for operational excellence and establish best practices in manufacturing. Our dedicated employees, management team and board members each were instrumental in the company earning this award.”
