First presented in 2004, Top Plant will honor up to five manufacturing plants in the 2014 program.

Beyond the recognition is an opportunity for manufacturers to conduct an internal audit of operations against the criteria in the Top Plant entry form. Entrants also can benchmark their plants’ performance against other entrants.

"Past entrants – even those who were not chosen for the award – have told us the most valuable part of the process has been the ability to quantify their operation against the Top Plant criteria," Vavra said. "This process allows manufacturers to take stock of their work, their metrics and their year-over-year improvements."
