SAVANNAH — Four South Georgia manufacturers were honored at the Savannah Technical College local board of directors meeting in June for being nominated in the annual manufacturer of the year awards.

Savannah Tech’s honored nominees included SNF Chemtall of Riceboro. The company was nominated as a large business.

Also honored were Daniel Defense of the greater Savannah area, a small-sized company nominee; DIRTT Environmental Solutions of Savannah, nominated as a small-sized company; and JCB Inc. of Pooler/Savannah, a medium-sized company nominee.

The Technical College System of Georgia and the Georgia Department of Economic Development presented the awards as part of Manufacturing Appreciation Week. Every year, Georgia celebrates MAW by recognizing companies as manufacturers of the year at the annual governor’s awards’ luncheon.

The awards were handed out in April. According to the Henry Daily Herald, Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point won in the large-manufacturer category; Quad/Graphics’ facility in The Rock won the medium category; and Applied Thermoplastic Resources of Cartersville won in the small manufacturer category.
