PASO ROBLES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced that five customers were recognized with manufacturing excellence awards at the 2015 Plastics News Executive Forum. Awarded February 5 at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas hotel, IQMS manufacturers won in the customer, employee, workplace and sustained excellence categories.
Automotive manufacturer, Prism Plastics, Inc., received the Excellence Award for Customer Relations. Across its three highly-automated factories, Prism specializes in safety critical products for Tier 1 and 2 suppliers. The manufacturer's extremely low defective parts per million (PPM) have resulted in long-term customer relationships.
Nicolet Plastics Inc., a manufacturer specializing in low-volume, complex parts, received the Excellence Award for Employee Relations. Rather than holding a static job position, Nicolet employees instead learn a range of skills. These cross trained employees create a more flexible team that drive improvements and contribute to a better manufacturing process.
Open only to previous winners of the Processor of the Year award, the inaugural Sustained Excellence award went to Plastic Components Inc. (PCI). Another IQMS manufacturer, PCI has continued to demonstrate manufacturing leadership and innovation since its Plastics News win in 2008.
Finally, three IQMS customers joined the Plastics News Great Places to Work winners circle. B&B Molders LLC, Custom Profile Inc. and PCI boast some of the most employee-friendly manufacturing companies in the nation.
"Creating a great place to work was a recurring theme at this year's Executive Forum," said Steve Bieszczat, chief marketing officer at IQMS. "Treating employees, the community and the environment with the same respect we treat our customers results in employees who are motivated to do more and better work. This engagement subsequently delivers better customer service and higher quality products."
