Nominations Being Accepted for SC Silver Crescent Awards

Applications for seventh annual South Carolina Silver Crescent Awards for Manufacturing Excellence are now being accepted. Winners will be announced at the Salute to Manufacturing awards luncheon on Monday, May 5, 2008, at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.


With nearly 5,000 manufacturers serving as the lifeblood of South Carolina's economy, the Silver Crescent Awards for Manufacturing Excellence recognize the best and brightest of the state's corporate citizens. In addition to excelling in manufacturing, winning companies must exhibit a commitment to workforce enhancement and contribute to their communities as well as support local educational opportunities and resources.


“These awards honor outstanding small, medium and large manufacturers and promote the importance of manufacturing to the standard of living and quality of life in the Palmetto State,” said Tony Smith, president of the Silver Crescent Foundation. “The Salute to Manufacturing is one of the ways we communicate to the business community, educational institutions, our elected officials and the general public about the important role manufacturing continues to play in South Carolina's economic well-being.” 


Last year's award recipients were BASF Corporation, Inergy Automotive Systems and Washington Savannah River Corporation. Past winners include Automation Engineering Corporation, Bridgestone Firestone, Roche Carolina, Decolam, Sonoco and U.S. Engine Valve Company.


To be eligible, nominees must have been in business in South Carolina for at least three years, as of May 1, 2008. Awards are presented in three categories—small, medium and large manufacturers—as determined by the number of employees. Anyone may nominate a manufacturer, including employees, community leaders and volunteers.


Nomination applications may be completed at and submitted no later than March 3, 2008, for presentation to the award selection committee.
