Technical Glass Products (TGP) was recently named the 2014 Washington State Manufacturer of the Year Silver Award winner by Seattle Business magazine, thanks to a successful 2013 that saw increased employment, a new 20,000 square-foot powder coating facility built and expanded operations overseas, according to the company announcement.
“Our team members have put in a lot of hard work over the last few years. Whether they’re evaluating a new approach to manufacturing or solving design challenges, they work with a mindset of continual improvement,” says Mike Powell, director of operations at TGP. “It’s an honor to have those efforts recognized by the Washington State Manufacturing Award committee.”
According to the company, opportunities to streamline operations, such as bringing previously outsourced powder coating operations in-house, allowed TGP to reduce costs and further improve product quality.
