Awards were given to manufacturers that have demonstrated a commitment to improving business through Smart Manufacturing in the categories of: Operational Excellence & Quality; Growth & Innovation; Technology; and Workforce Development.

This year SAY Plastics took home top honors in the Technology category. The award went to the finalist that best accelerated opportunities which leverage and adopt manufacturing technology.  Other category finalists included ACCO Brands, Phoenix Contact, Four Seasons Produce and York Imperial Plastics.

The main initiatives behind this award for SAY Plastics include the company’s SAYtooling System and the use of 3D printed components in collaboration with thermoforming processing.

The SAYtooling System strategy involves tooling design and materials developed around required process and production applications to achieve the most cost-effective project results. This unique engineering-focused process allows SAY Plastics to effectively and affordably produce small part runs. Learn more about the SAYtooling System.
