SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Positronic, a global manufacturer of high-reliability electronic connector products, recently won the Technology Manufacturer of the Year Award. The award was presented by the Missouri Association of Manufacturers (MAM) at the 5th annual Made in Missouri Leadership Awards & Appreciation Event.
The Made in Missouri Leadership Award for Technology Manufacturer of the Year was centered on several key metrics, from the technology itself to the teamwork within the company. The Missouri manufacturing operations at Positronic are the center point of the company’s global manufacturing operations, where strategic decisions are made for effective production of products. The award was based on measurable results of the technology, execution of the business strategy, effective leadership, business metrics, culture, teamwork, and competitiveness of the product in the marketplace.
“Positronic is proud to continue its leadership in manufacturing, both in Missouri and globally,” said Bill Gentry, vice president of business development at Positronic. “The technology award displays the innovative spirit, commitment, and teamwork of our employees.”
The Made in Missouri Leadership Awards (MMLAs) were developed to honor manufacturing companies and individual leaders that are shaping the future of manufacturing. Innovative companies and individuals in the manufacturing industry from across Missouri were recognized in all segments of manufacturing.
Positronic was recognized as a leader in manufacturing for its interconnect products, specifically its Scorpion series connectors. The Scorpion series is being adopted by organizations that are developing the newest web technologies in the world, including demanding datacom applications. The connector series is also widely used in mission-critical military projects. Because of its modular design, the Scorpion series connectors can be developed for specific applications and brought to market much more quickly than tradition products, according to Positronic.
