Humtown Wins National Association of Manufacturers Award

COLUMBIANA, Ohio – Humtown Products was recently honored with a Manufacturing Leadership Award.

The National Association of Manufacturers honored the company with the award in the category of Transformational Business Cultures for its proprietary “The Industrial Athlete Operating System.”

The Manufacturing Leadership Awards celebrated Humtown alongside other industry leaders such as Intel, IBM, Cisco Systems, Whirlpool and General Motors across eleven categories.

“It’s an honor to accept this award on behalf of our amazing team. This recognition underscores our relentless pursuit of unlocking our team members’ God-given potential, which is the cornerstone of Humtown’s culture,” said Mark Lamoncha, president of Humtown. “We believe in ‘ValYouShip,’ valuing each person above all else, because innovation and technology will never surpass the value of a human being. It’s about embracing and releasing divergent and dynamic differences among team members so we can be better together.”

Humtown previously won the Small to Medium Manufacturer of the Year award in 2020, and also received accolades for Talent Management with its Visual Earnings System and Engineering and Production Leadership for commercializing 3D sand printing. 

The 2024 award recognizes the book “The Industrial Athlete Operating System,” which documents a holistic, transformational process.

“For the judges and committee to acknowledge the uniqueness of ‘The Industrial Athlete Operating System’ among so many deserving finalists is truly an honor,” said co-author Tim Figley. “Standing on stage alongside the giants in manufacturing is an awesome experience.”

“The Industrial Athlete Operating System” is available at Amazon, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble and Audible.
