The judging panel for the American Manufacturing Strategy Awards, which recognizes outstanding achievement in manufacturing, consisted of senior-level executives involved in the manufacturing industry representing global giants including Caterpillar Inc., The Clorox Company, and PepsiCo.
Bally won the award for Outstanding Achievement in Continuous Improvement, which honors the Companys excellence in motivating employees to remove waste from processes.
