Excellence Awards

FCMA Excellence Awards

Formerly the Crane Awards after A. Crane Jones, Jr. (1923-2001),  a retired Senior Vice President of CSX Transportation widely recognized for his outstanding leadership and commitment to improving his community. His life was a testament to the commitment to excellence and integrity. FCMA continues to honor him with our annual awards presented to outstanding employees of member companies.

Now titled Excellence Awards, FCMA annually recognizes outstanding companies and individuals for contributions to manufacturing excellence. The event is one of our most esteemed and recognized activities of the year. We host a banquet dinner, complete with special awards to recognize our members’ outstanding employees and companies.

2020 Employee Excellence Awards

After taking feedback from our Members into consideration, we have decided to move the in-person 2020 Employee Awards event from October 30, 2020 to January 29, 2021.

While the in-person event will be moved, FCMA still wants to recognize your employees this October, so we will be hosting a virtual event during which all submitted winners will be recognized and honored ahead of the formal January event. If you wish to participate and have your employees recognized, please submit the application and your photos.

In this critical time, it is important to let your employees know how much they are appreciated and that they have not been forgotten. Please download your application here: 2020 Excellence Employee Form
