Lauren Manufacturing Company, a division of Lauren International, received the 2004 MANNY Award for manufacturing excellence from Inside Business Magazine and CAMP, Inc., a professional services organization helping manufacturing and technology-based companies for over 20 years. The presentation was made this past May in Cleveland, Ohio, at Inside Business Magazine’s 2004 awards luncheon.
The MANNY award is presented annually to companies in Northeast Ohio that exhibit outstanding manufacturing capabilities and help pioneer innovative solutions to today’s manufacturing challenges. According to Inside Business Magazine, “Lauren’s creative approach to maintaining a competitive edge and its commitment to exceeding customers’ expectations earn[ed] it a 2004 Manny Award.”
“Our focus is on delivering the greatest value possible for customers with a speed-to-market that is unmatched by anyone in the industry,” stated Kevin E. Gray, President of Lauren Manufacturing and President and C.O.O. of Lauren International. “We continually strive to find new and innovative value-added solutions for getting new products to market when and where our customers need them. It is very satisfying to know one of our divisions has been recognized for all of our hard work and the dedication and creativity of our employees.”
“Lauren International is a vertically integrated organization,” Gray added, “and Lauren Manufacturing readily accesses all of the global, technical and cutting-edge developments that are being realized in our organization. Through our offices here in the US, the UK, Germany and the Pacific Rim, we are quickly becoming an unlimited resource for a multitude of products and services.
“A great deal of the credit has to go to our employees,” Gray concluded. “They have become very involved in decision-making processes. As a result, we are much more in tune with the needs and expectations of our customers.”
