Eagle Alloy Honored as Michigan Manufacturer of the Year

The Michigan Manufacturers Association announced Eagle Alloy (Muskegon, Michigan) has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the John G. Thodis Michigan Manufacturer of the Year Award. The award honors the important, positive and tangible contributions individual manufacturers make to their employees, customers and communities. The Eagle Alloy team received the award during the 2018 MFG Excellence Awards on November 8 at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing.

Eagle Alloy was selected by an independent panel of judges for being at the forefront when it comes to progressive ways to attract students to the manufacturing community, utilizing career day events, internships and community engagement with over 40 charitable organizations.

“The Eagle Alloy team, from its executives to its shop floor, represent the very best of manufacturing and place a high emphasis on integrity, teamwork, respect, continuous improvement and accountability,” said Chuck Hadden, MMA president & CEO. “With a tradition of social responsibility and innovative products, the Eagle Alloy name belongs among the 38-year lineage of the John G. Thodis Michigan Manufacturer of the Year award.”

“There are a lot of phrases or buzzwords associated with a successful business, whether it be continuous improvement or lean manufacturing,” said Mark Fazakerley, co-chairman, Eagle Group. “We do all of those, but I think when it comes right down to it, the business is built on trust.”
