About The Machinist Super Shopfloor Awards
Organized by Worldwide Media (WWM) the magazine subsidiary of The Times of India Group (BCCL), ‘The Machinist Super Shopfloor Awards’ is built on the legacy of organising ‘Best in class’ Awards platforms like Filmfare and Top Gear India to name a few. Started in 2015, The Machinist Super Shopfloor Awards platform has already created a benchmark through credibility, fairness and acceptance in India’s discrete manufacturing sector. Some of the best manufacturing brands in the country have participated in this platform in last two years and more companies are expected to join in this year.
Nominations are invited from shopfloors (and not companies). It is a very open and fair platform that truly brings out the best of Indian manufacturing. There are ten different categories that address the key measurable parameters for a manufacturing plant’s performance. These include:
- Digital Manufacturing
- Innovation (Product/Process)
- Green Manufacturing
- Machining Excellence
- Human Resources (HR)
- Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
- Supply Chain Management.
Further, there are two segments to create a level playing field - Large Enterprises & SMEs. Sending entries is simple and the nomination form is self-explanatory. Nomination FAQs are also provided to help plants create their nominations. Nominations are assessed by a panel of eminent Jury Members who are top management industry experts with substantial experience.
The winners are felicitated at a Grand Awards ceremony, which is the first (and only) Red Carpet function for the Manufacturing Industry in India. The winning team takes home the coveted ‘Machie’ trophy, which has become so popular that many now refer to the Awards platform as the ‘Machie Awards’.
Winners from the previous edition include brands like Ashok Leyland, Bajaj Auto, Bharat Forge, BrahMos Aerospace, Burckhardt, Continental AG (India), Cooper Corporation, Cummins India, Demag Cranes, Eaton, Escorts, FIAT India, Hyundai Motor India, Jaycee Autofabs, JCB India, Kirloskar Brothers, Mahindra & Mahindra, Mahle Behr, RSB Group, Schwing Stetter India, Tata Lockheed Martin, Toshiba T&D India and Volkswagen India amongst others. Besides, honoring manufacturing plants, we also recognize four top industry leaders with People Awards, which are chosen by our Editorial Board headed by the magazine’s Editor himself. These include:
- The Machinist Super Next Generation Leader
- The Machinist Lifetime Achievement Award
- The Machinist Super Entrepreneur
