Protolabs Lands Top Award from Manufacturing Leadership Council
We are proud to announce that we’ve been named Manufacturer of the Year—the top prize at this year’s Manufacturing Leadership Awards Gala. Presented by the Manufacturing Leadership Council during its annual Rethink Summit, the honor recognizes our all-around excellence as a small-to-medium sized manufacturer.
“Thank you to MLC leadership for recognizing our dedication to offering our customers the fastest and most comprehensive digital manufacturing service in the industry,” said Brian Peters, Protolabs Chief Marketing Officer.
We accepted the award alongside AB InBev, which won the “Large Enterprise” category. This comes at an especially meaningful time for us, as we recently completed one of the largest projects in our 20+ year history, revamping our digital thread, followed by the acquisition of the Hubs manufacturing network.
Protolabs also won a Leadership Award in the “Collaborative Ecosystem” category, specifically honoring our new digital quoting platform and revamped digital thread. This was our eighth consecutive Manufacturing Leadership Award, which in the past has recognized our sustainability efforts, technological investments, and overall innovation. At the Rethink Summit, Peters participated in a roundtable discussion to review the development of the new digital quoting platform. Other participants included AB InBev, General Motors, and Johnson & Johnson.
