TALLAHASSEE, FL.- At the 12th Annual Florida Manufacturers Summit and Marketplace on November 5 in West Palm Beach, FL the Manufacturers Association of Florida announced the winners of the 2015 Manufacturers and Distributors of the Year Statewide competition.
Thirty-six judges narrowed the competition to twenty-one finalists in five categories. Each company was judged on leadership, strategic planning, customer and market focus, measurement, analysis and knowledge management, workforce focus, and process management. In addition to evaluation of the applications, the judges toured finalists' facilities. At the conclusion of the night, ADI Metal was announced as the Manufacturers Association of Florida (MAF) 2015 DISTRIBUTOR OF THE YEAR. MAF Annual Summit was held at the Marriott in West Palm Beach. More than 200 manufacturers and supporting businesses, such as ADI Metal, gathered at the West Palm Beach Marriott to recognize manufacturing and the support of their distributors to discuss issues facing the industry with the goal of eliminating barriers for manufacturing success. Informative sessions filled the day with Governor Rick Scott making an appearance in the afternoon. The Governor told the group that a $1 Billion dollar tax cut package he is proposing would help to grow the manufacturing industry and Florida's small businesses to further diversify the economy and guard Florida against another economic downturn.
We are proud to be recognized by the State of Florida for our commitment to our support of Florida manufacturers and continue to stand ready to provide quality, on-time materials to our current and future customers. ~ Betsy McGee, President ADI Metal, Fort Lauderdale, FL www.ADIMetal.com
