Cincy Magazine Honors Mazak With Manufacturing Excellence Award

Florence, Kentucky, June 23, 2011 – Cincy, the magazine for business professionals, has recognized Mazak Corporation as one of 15 Greater Cincinnati/Tristate companies that have shown outstanding manufacturing success.

Mazak was awarded the esteemed Manny Award at the 5th Annual Manny Awards banquet, held on June 6, at the Cintas Center at Xavier University, celebrating manufacturing excellence.

An independent panel selected Mazak under the Award’s “Biggest Breakthrough” category. The award was based on Mazak’s growth in the community, its strong involvement in area training programs, aggressive hiring at its Florence, Kentucky, manufacturing facility, and on the company’s solid economic rebound.

Mazak reported record levels of business for the opening months of 2011. And that momentum continues at a steady pace as the year progresses.

“Mazak sincerely thanks Cincy Magazine and the Award panel for this prestigious honor and recognition, which I credit, largely, to the enthusiastic and hard-working employees at Mazak,” said Brian Papke, president of Mazak. “We are extremely pleased to be recognized as a Cincinnati/Tristate manufacturing company that has continued its aggressive nationwide growth and expansion to better serve our customers.”
