From a story to a movement
What started off as a magazine story (article) in December 2014 has now become a movement of excellence in manufacturing! Having completed five consecutive editions thus far, The Machinist Super Shopfloor Awards platform is now all set for the milestone sixth edition in 2020. Instituted in 2015, The Machinist Super Shopfloor Awards platform recognises the excellence and success of Indian manufacturing units in the large as well as the SME segment. Winning shopfloors take home the Machie trophy. The Machie trophy is conferred upon plants that excel in various categories like Safety, Productivity, Machining Excellence, Digital Manufacturing, Innovation, Green Manufacturing and so on.
