Nominations are now open for the 2014 North American Maintenance ExcellencePLE1405_WEB_IMG_NAME_AWARD (NAME). One of the most prestigious recognitions in the maintenance and reliability function, the NAME Awards are presented to individual plants on the basis of their maintenance departments to provide “capacity assurance for operational excellence” in the areas of organization, work processes, and materials management. 

The 2013 NAME winner was the Emergent BioSolutions plant in Lansing, Mich. “They had applied for the award unsuccessfully several years ago, and used that experience to help build their program to the level of excellence it demonstrates today,” NAME officials said in recognizing the 2013 recipient.

The 2014 NAME Award application form is now available. Deadline for applications is June 30. Application for the award can be found at the NAME Website, www.nameaward.com. The North American Maintenance Excellence (NAME) Awards are a program of the Foundation for Industrial Maintenance Excellence.
