SNF Chemtall in Riceboro was one of three South Georgia manufacturers recently honored at Savannah Technical College’s board of directors’ June meeting for having been chosen to participate in the annual Manufacturer of the Year competition.
The contest is a part of the annual Manufacturing Appreciation Week in Atlanta.
Daniel Defense in Black Creek and Derst Baking in Savannah also were honored.
Every year during Manufacturing Appreciation Week, several of the state’s most productive companies are named Manufacturers of the Year at the governor’s awards luncheon. Manufacturing Appreciation Week was developed by the Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
Companies are nominated by technical colleges in their communities. Savannah Technical College nominated seven companies, including JCB Inc., International Paper, Weyerhauser Company and LMI Kitting, LLC. LMI was selected as the Manufacturer of the Year in the category of small manufacturer.
