“These members, of both NCMA and ICPI, are not only award holders but together they exist as the paradigm for our industry,” said NCMA President Bob Thomas. “Practicing safe manufacturing processes are more than fundamental, they’re paramount. We’re so proud to be associated with these member organizations and it’s encouraging to see this program effectively highlighting such commitment.”
“The NCMA/ICPI program recognizes safety-conscious manufacturers and suppliers and we couldn’t be more behind it,” said ICPI Executive Director Charles McGrath. “Safety is not only great business, but it’s promotes a positive work culture, and morale. While honoring a good record we’re also honoring responsible businesses. And that’s extremely promising for our industry as a whole.”
