The ML100 program's key technology partners were also honored with a new President's Award at the ceremony last night. Named after Heather L. Holst-Knudsen, the president of Manufacturing Enterprise Communications, the parent of Manufacturing Executive, the award recognizes technology suppliers that have participated in the awards program for the past five years. Honorees include:

  • AT&T
  • Cisco
  • Apriso
  • Plex Systems
  • Oracle
  • Deloitte
  • ILS Technology

"The many accomplishments of the manufacturing companies winning ML100 awards over the years could not have been possible without the innovations provided by these technology partners," Holst-Knudsen said. "In addition, the support of the Manufacturing Leadership Summit by these same companies has been critical to making the Summit the success it is today."

All of the 2012 ML100 winners were honored at a black-tie ceremony yesterday during the Manufacturing Leadership Summit at The Breakers in Palm Beach, FL.

"Looking at the top winners in this year's ML100 group, it is easy to understand why manufacturing has been leading the economic recovery," said David R. Brousell, Vice President & Editorial Director for Manufacturing Executive and an ML100 judge. "The companies that have achieved top honors for their transformative projects reflect the strong spirit of innovation that exists today in our industry. In addition, the Visionary Leadership award to Sir James Dyson shows how much importance the ML100 judges attach to contributions to the industry as a whole."
