Frost & Sullivan announces the launch of the 16th edition of its India Manufacturing Excellence Awards 2019 (IMEA), scheduled to be held on December 4th, 2019, in Mumbai. IMEA is India’s earliest and most respected assessment based manufacturing excellence award. The process has been perfected over 1000 manufacturing companies spread across 20 sectors. The 2019 edition of IMEA assessment will evaluate organizations on their Manufacturing Capability, Extended Supply Chain Reliability and Technology Adoption. Future of manufacturing will be driven by companies that adopt digital manufacturing and global optimization. This year onward, assessment will robustly focus on both these pillars.

MSME sector has been an integral part of most companies and driving excellence in this segment of industry is equally important. To bring the focus of Manufacturing Excellence into this sector, Frost & Sullivan has launched the MSME Manufacturing Excellence Awards under the aegis of India Manufacturing Excellence Awards.

Talking about this edition of the IMEA, Nitin Kalothia, Director, Manufacturing & Process Consulting Practice, Frost & Sullivan said, “Adoption of technology is slowly increasing in India and will change India’s status of a low cost manufacturing hub. With adoption of advanced manufacturing practices, improvement in infrastructure and manpower skills, India is all set to be the hub for global manufacturing. Indian manufacturing capability has improved significantly over the last few decades and we feel proud to have contributed to it in our own way.”
