Nominations sought to recognize people who work in manufacturing

The Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership at Georgia Tech is looking for nominations of people who work in or support manufacturing for the launch of the Faces of Manufacturing.

The yearlong campaign is designed to showcase “the unsung heroes of Georgia manufacturing and highlight the important role they and the industry play in the state,” according to a release.

The first round of nominations is being accepted through Monday.

The partnership will highlight a different nominee each month in 2015 as that month’s Face of Manufacturing. In order to be eligible, nominees must be employed in manufacturing or have ties to the industry.

A 12-member committee made up of representatives from Georgia Tech, economic development groups, manufacturing companies and related associations will make the selections.

The nomination form is available at, and it should be sent to
