Partnership Gwinnett and Gwinnett Technical College recently announced several local manufacturers as winners of the eighth annual Movers and Makers Awards.

The business group and the college team up annually to highlight Gwinnett-based manufacturers for their work in the community, their workforce excellence programs and their corporate social responsibility, according to Partnership Gwinnett.

“Gwinnett Technical College thrives, in large part, because of our impressive manufacturing and supply chain sector,” Gwinnett Technical College President D. Glen Cannon said in a statement. “They share this success with our students by investing in their education and careers. We’re proud to recognize these Movers and Makers for their continued community investment.”

The Small Manufacturer of the Year for companies with up to 99 employees was The Sherwin-Williams Company while the award for the Medium Manufacturer of the Year (for companies with 100 to 199 employees) went to TOMC02 Systems Company. Heatcraft Refrigeration Products won the award for the Large Manufacturer of the Year, which is for companies with at least 200 employees.

The Corporate Citizen Award was given to Valentine Enterprises while Peachtree Packaging and Display received the Most Valuable Provider award.

There were also two Supply Chain Pioneer of the Year awards handed out. One was for small supply chain companies that have 49 or less employees. The other is for large supply chain companies which have 50 or more employees.
