General Cable Plant Wins Industry Week Best Plant Competition

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.
