PharmaWorks Named Florida Manufacturer of the Year Award for 2011
The Manufacturers Association of Florida has presented PharmaWorks with the 2011 Florida Manufacturer of the Year award in the category of businesses with up to 60 employees. Peter Buczynsky, president of PharmaWorks, accepted the award at the annual Manufacturers’ Summit and Global Marketplace in Orlando, FL.
"Out of 17,573 manufacturers in Florida, approximately 16,000 fall into this award category, making this an award that we are especially honored to have been recognized for,” said Buczynsky, in a press release. “We have a great team of committed employees that put their hearts into making the business what it is – something certainly to be proud of."
As stated in a press release by the Manufacturers Association of Florida: "Twenty-four judges narrowed the competition to sixteen finalists; winners were chosen in four categories. Each company was judged on: leadership; strategic planning; customer and market focus; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; workforce focus; and process management. In addition to evaluation of applications, tours of finalists’ facilities were made by the judges."
“All of our finalists demonstrate a commitment to excellence in the manufacturing business, but our winners are the “best of the best” manufacturers in Florida this year. We are proud of their commitment to their business, their customers and their employees,” said Nancy Stephens, Executive Director, Manufacturers Association of Florida, in the press release.
PharmaWorks was recognized for community investments, green initiatives, internal process improvement implementation, and supply-chain process streamlining. Other evaluation metrics included innovative product developments, customer focus, and strategic planning initiatives evidenced by recent expansions that doubled the size of their internal machining capabilities.
