    The 2016 recipients

The large manufacturer category included those businesses with more than 300 employees, while the small to medium manufacturer category included businesses with less than 300 employees.

    “It is an honor to receive the Manufacturing Excellence Award, especially considering the outstanding group of manufacturers also nominated. The award is very gratifying and means a lot to our employees to be recognized for their efforts in delivering best-in-class products to our valued customers.” said Jim McIntyre, President and CEO of Greenheck.

    “We are extremely honored to be the recipient of the 2016 Manufacturing Excellence Award.” said Glenn Gazzolo, President of Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats. “Vince Lombardi once said, ‘The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.’ At Nueske’s, we truly believe that the people involved are the reason the business exists. We value the results of hard work and receiving this award reinforces our commitment and our efforts towards making the finest bacon and helping the community prosper.”
