General Cable’s Marion, Ind., manufacturing facility recently won an award in Industry Week’s 2014 North America Best Plants Competition. The Best Plants Award recognizes world-class facilities in North America that perform with excellence in terms of increasing competitiveness, enhancing customer satisfaction and creating stimulating and rewarding work environments.
A press release said this year’s award is significant because the General Cable team recently executed a major turnaround at the facility. Industry Week designated the plant as a pacesetter in manufacturing performance. The plant manufactures industrial and specialty cables for renewable energy, oil & gas, mining and commercial building markets. Since 2001, 14 of General Cable’s plants have been selected as finalists in the competition and 11 of those plants achieved the Best Plant title.
