Milbank Wins Made in Missouri Leadership Award
Through the support of our executive team, board of directors and family of owners, we have been able to concentrate on continuous improvement in all three of our manufacturing locations. In late 2016, Milbank initiated a master plan to invest in technology based on needs in several critical areas. As part of this master plan, the Kansas City plant underwent a massive transformation. Teams were formed to review equipment and machinery, software, employee productivity, quality and facility needs.
In recognition of our commitment to quality and innovation, Milbank was awarded a Made in Missouri Leadership award, presented by the Missouri Association of Manufacturers, in the Production Technology category.
Of the award, Jeff Caudle, plant manager for Kansas City, said, It's an honor to receive this award and share the winner's circle with other successful manufacturers in Missouri. The competition is tough and we are lucky to have a leadership team that supports growth.
We were able to achieve our short-term goals, increasing quality and efficiency and most importantly, improving employee morale. While we have made great strides, our vision for improvement is not 100% complete. Milbank constantly seeks to improve products, productivity and culture to solidify our position as a leader in the industry.
