At last week’s Buffalo Business First Manufacturing Awards there was quite a turnout. Hundreds of people came to recognize Western New York’s top manufacturing companies. The event, which is presented by Business First and Sponsored by Buffalo Manufacturing Works, Insyte Consulting, Sonwil Distribution, and Key Bank, give us in the industry an opportunity to recognize what our peers are doing.
We were honored to be recognized by the voting panel with the Operational Excellence Award. Buffalo Business First cited our automated processes, commitment to technology, and employee benefits as reasons for choosing Staub for the award. We know that Staub is a great company and a super place to work, but it is still fun and exciting when we are recognized by others. Here’s a fun fact: three of our customers were also recognized at the Manufacturing Awards also!
Operational Excellence is something that we are always striving for, and just because we won this award doesn’t mean that we’re settling for our current level of excellence. The pursuit of excellence is what drives us to be a leader in advanced manufacturing in Western New York. At last year’s event we were recognized with the Innovation Award. Our goal is to be in running for the Innovation Award year in and year out, because for us part of operational excellence is continual innovation.
