Vitamix, a Cleveland, OH-based maker of high performance blenders for home and commercial use, was named a Manny Award winner by Inside Business magazine.
The awards honor Northeast Ohio companies for innovation and best practices in a variety of industries. A panel of judges, including Inside Business magazine editors and area business leaders, selected the nine 2014 award winners from a group of manufacturing leaders in the Greater Cleveland area.
Joe Pullella, Vitamix vice president of operations, said the company has grown quickly as worldwide popularity of its blenders has grown. "In response, we have implemented a lean manufacturing system that enables us to consistently deliver…top-quality products," Pullella said. "We’re creating a culture where every employee strives to improve every process every day."
In the last 16 years the Manny Awards have recognized more than 100 manufacturers from Northeast Ohio that excel in product development, green initiatives, and workplace environment.
