MasterCraft Boats has joined an elite group of businesses in the US as the 2015 winner of IndustryWeek’s Best Plant Award.
The honour recognises operational excellence in cutting-edge manufacturing facilities across North America that have successfully implemented strategies to increase competitiveness, enhance customer satisfaction, and foster stimulating and rewarding work environments.
Now in its 26th year, the IndustryWeek Best Plants Award has recognised US-based manufacturers such as Harley Davidson, Lockheed Martin and Toyota, who have all been recipients of the award.
Terry McNew, CEO of MasterCraft commented, “MasterCraft is honoured to earn this award and be recognised among these elite manufacturing facilities. Across the company, we continue to set new benchmarks for operational excellence and establish best practices in manufacturing. Our dedicated employees, management team and board members were each instrumental in the company earning this award.”
Michael Hardicker, MD of MasterCraft Boats UK, explained, “Over the last few years, MasterCraft has implemented a company-wide charter to improve both its production facilities and the manufacturing process, together ensuring the highest level of quality in the construction of our boats. We work closely with our colleagues in the US and they are always receptive to our input. Our own superyacht tenders division is a good example of that cooperation.”
The Company stands alone as the only marine manufacturer to achieve three separate ISO certifications for quality, environmental, and safety management systems, across its production and product development operations.
