JACKSON — Michigan Manufacturer Association this week presented six manufacturers in Michigan the John G. Thodis Award. This year, award recipients were Chrysler Group LLC, Amigo Mobility International, Automatic Spring Products Corporation, Eagle Alloy Inc., Anderson Global, and Full Spectrum Solutions Inc.
The awards program, in its 30th year, recognizes the positive contributions of Michigan manufacturers to the industry and their local communities. The honorees were presented with their awards at a luncheon held in conjunction with the MMA CEO & Executive Forum. The event was held at the Henry Center for Executive Development in Lansing and featured an address by Governor Snyder and keynote presentation from Charles G. McClure, CEO of Meritor, Inc. and Director of Business Leaders of Michigan.
“We know that we have a huge talent base, and a huge foundation for resources in Michigan. If we can buy something here, procure it here, or make it here, we are going to do that. These awards solidify that others besides Full Spectrum Solutions are making this commitment to Michigan’s economy,” said Michael Nevins, CEO of Full Spectrum Solutions, Inc.
The event brings manufacturing leaders together from across the state to discuss the most pressing issues impacting manufacturers each year, manufacturer to manufacturer.
In addition, Gov. Rick Snyder signed the proclamation at the event for May 6th through May 13th to be Michigan Manufacturing Week. Snyder also discussed several resources available to Michigan businesses and emphasized Michigan talent, and teamwork.
