Dear MAF Manufacturer of the Year Finalists and Winners:
Congratulations on your success in 2012! Thank you for participation in the MAF Awards process and to all of you who attended the MAF Summit last week, thank you for being there. As a reminder I wanted you to know that we offer a service to our award finalists. To help you with continuous improvement, our lead judge, Phil Centonze, POS-Impact, LLC, will visit your facility again free of charge, sometime in the next 9 months at your convenience, to talk about ways your company could improve on our areas of emphasis: leadership; strategic planning; customer and market focus; measurement, analysis and knowledge management; workforce focus; and process managmeent. If that is something of interest to you, please email him with your request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have a finalist wall plaque for each of you. We sincerely regret that the shipping delay prevented us from presenting the plaque to you at the Awards Dinner but they will ship out to you this week. Be on the lookout for them.
Looking ahead to next year for our finalists, think about entering the competition again! For our award winners, you will be asked to make a presentation on your best practices at next year’s Summit and announce the 2013 winners! We will be in touch as soon as we have the Summit date for 2013 so you can mark your calendars.
Lastly, the names of our winners will be displayed on the MAF website, www.mafmfg.com, for the next 12 months. We we also will be sending this press release to the Governor’s Office, Florida Trend, the Capital Press Corps, your regional manufacturers association, and Enterprise Florida, to let them know of your success this year. Feel free to send the press release to your local media.
My best wishes for a prosperous 2013!
