Manufacturing Best Practice Awards, Utah’s Statewide Initiative for Expanding Manufacturing, Developing Tomorrow’s Workforce Today, The Image and Perception of Manufacturing


The Utah Manufacturers Association salutes companies that have implemented a best practice in 2013. The Best Practice Award committee will evaluate the submissions.

2013 Best Practice Awards recipients will be notified in advance of the Manufacturing Summit to be held on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at Salt Lake Community College, Miller Campus 9750 South 300 West.


Recognizing that companies of different sizes face different challenges in their best practice programs, awards will be presented for four different categories according to number of employees. The range of company sizes and categories are as follows: 1 to 50 Employees, 51 to 200 Employees, 201 to 500 Employees and 501 Employees and up. We anticipate this format will afford more opportunity for additional companies to compete with like-sized companies.


Each company may apply for two of the best practice award categories. There are four best practice award categories; 1) Equipment/Process Reliability, 2) Continuous Improvement, 3) Quality Management System and 4) Problem Solving Capability. Please see attachment for category questions. Each question should be answered with no more than a ½ page. A Power Point presentation of 10 slides is acceptable for each award category along with the question submittal. Please submit applications with a cover sheet stating your Company, Contact Name, Contact Email, Phone Number and Number of Employees.


Applications for consideration for the 2013 Utah Manufacturers Association Best Practice Awards must be received by the Utah Manufacturers Association office by August 15, 2013 at 5 p.m.

Utah Manufacturers Association, 136 East South Temple, Suite 1740, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, uma@umaweb.org

We look forward to receiving your application.
