CRMA Manufacturers To Hold Excellence Awards Luncheon

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

The Chattanooga Regional Manufacturers Association will host its annual Manufacturers Excellence Awards Luncheon on Wednesday this week at the Chattanooga Convention Center, Exhibit Hall C.  The luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.

The event serves to recognize members of the organization who exemplify practices resulting in manufacturing excellence. The Manufacturers Excellence Awards are presented in the categories of Energy/Environment, Safety, Company of the Year (less than 100 employees) and Company of the Year, and serve to distinguish entire organizations for their overall achievements and positive impacts. The Association will also present the “InSpires” award, which was created last year in memory of Tim Spires, former president/CEO of the Association, who passed away unexpectedly last February. 

Jeff Cornett, manager, Industrial & Economic Development for Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will deliver the keynote address.

For more information and details regarding the upcoming Manufacturers Excellence Awards Luncheon, call the CRMA office at 423-266-1902.
