The Manufacturing Leadership Council’s panel of judges selected PMT based on the company’s development and implementation of transformative projects, which demonstrated innovation and best practices. PMT earned the Operational Leadership Award for its commitment to wide-ranging continuous improvement programs, which have yielded measurable results and contributed positively to quality, service, and overall company performance. PMT’s ongoing sustainability initiative has focused on reducing energy consumption and operational waste through various strategies, including the development of proprietary technologies that reduce the amount of electricity used by molding presses.

PMT was in good company at the annual manufacturing event, sharing the spotlight with Boeing, which was named Manufacturer of the Year award among large companies.

“We are honored to receive these awards, which reflect positively on the entire plastics industry as well as our many PMT team members, who helped develop and implement the programs that earned us this recognition,” said Charles A. Sholtis, chief executive officer and owner of PMT. “These honors simply reinforce that the plastics industry is at the forefront of best practices in manufacturing.”

“This award is also an honor for our community,” Sholtis added. “The El Paso / Juarez Borderplex is a world-class manufacturing center with great companies and hard-working, talented people who are committed to excellence.”

PMT was nominated by IQMS, whose enterprise resource planning software solutions have helped to power the injection molder’s initiatives related to both continuous improvement and sustainability.
