The Annual Awards Banquet has been an ongoing tradition with UMA since 1905. These awards hold great significance as they acknowledge the vital role of manufacturing in Utah’s economy and distinguish leaders who excel in innovation, growth, corporate citizenship, and environmental excellence.

Receiving one of these esteemed awards highlights your accomplishments and reflects your unwavering commitment to excellence, dedication to your employee’s well-being, and investment in the community.

We are still accepting nominations through the UMA website until 5:00 p.m. MST on September 29, 2023. Manufacturers from all over Utah can apply, regardless of headquarters residency. The awards are divided into categories based on company size to ensure fairness. We strongly encourage self-nominations.

UMA Manufacturing Awards:

Manufacturer of the Year: The Manufacturer of the Year Award recognizes outstanding achievements in Utah manufacturing.

Company Culture: The Best Company Culture award recognizes companies with a strong and positive atmosphere. Culture includes values, attributes, and behaviors that define an organization. A strong culture helps employees understand and align their actions.

The inspiring leadership of women in manufacturing serves as a guiding light for other aspiring women looking to thrive in this industry.
