Cambridge Engineering Wins 'Manufacturer of the Year' from Missouri Association of Manufacturers
A highly engaged workforce and a renewed focus on continuous improvement using “lean” principles has earned Cambridge Engineering the title of “Manufacturer of the Year” from the Missouri Association of Manufacturers. The annual Made in Missouri Leadership Awards honor manufacturing companies and individual leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Cambridge Engineering was singled out for the association’s top award because of its deep focus on quality, cost, and productivity improvements.
“We are honored to be recognized with this prestigious award,” said John Kramer, president & CEO of Cambridge Engineering. “Our approach to ‘lean’ principles has truly transformed our company culture, making us more aware of inefficiencies and waste. We have also pumped up our creativity and keep finding better ways to bring energy-efficient solutions to the marketplace.”
Cambridge is the leading manufacturer of energy-efficient, high temperature heating and ventilation (HTHV) equipment. Cambridge products are used to heat and improve indoor air quality in large spaces such as gymnasiums, sports venues, and warehouses. The company has invested heavily in research and development to develop products that save energy, reduce operating costs and safely improve indoor air quality in commercial and industrial buildings.
Cambridge is an active member of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Better Buildings Alliance, an initiative of manufacturers and businesses dedicated to reducing energy consumption in commercial spaces by a minimum of 20 percent by the year 2020. Cambridge engineers recently worked with DOE to create the high temperature heating and ventilation (HTHV) product classification.
Additionally, Cambridge engineering staff work closely with the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers to create standards for performance and energy efficiency of products within the industry.
Kramer said Cambridge actively advocates within the national HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) industry, for ethical and sound business practices as well as specifically for the promotion of energy-efficient, safe heating and ventilating products and solutions.
