LINAK, a worldwide leader in electric linear actuation solutions, has been honored as a recipient of the 2016 Manufacturer of the Year Award in the mid-sized business category.
Given by The Kentucky Association of Manufacturers, the annual award recognizes local businesses that are innovators and leaders in Kentucky’s manufacturing community. The award is given to three distinct categories: small, mid-size and large. The mid-size category represents companies with 101 to 300 Kentucky-based full-time employees.
According to The Kentucky Association of Manufacturers, this award was created “to focus attention on the important contributions manufacturers and industry make to their employees, customers and communities.”
With ongoing safety, lean and quality initiatives, LINAK management places emphasis on a safe working environment and continuous production and logistics quality improvement. Additionally, LINAK was recently granted ISO 14001:2004 certification and ISO 9001:2008 re-certification, which signify minimal environmental impact and continuous production and logistics quality improvement, respectively.
“Our team’s dedication to consistent process improvements and compliance put us in a position to achieve this recognition by The Kentucky Association of Manufacturers. Special thanks to our hardworking team for making this possible,” said Jan Petersen, Vice President of Operations at LINAK U.S. Inc.
