“Our evaluation system scrutinized every nominee’s application closely for performance in all seven Crescents of Excellence,” said Tony Smith, president of the Silver Crescent Foundation, which annually bestows the awards.  “Our goal is to recognize the best of the best in South Carolina manufacturing – whether large, medium or small in company size – and these 11 finalists represent the very best our state has to offer.”

A national panel of expert judges is currently reviewing the finalists’ applications to determine winners, Smith added.  All finalist companies will be recognized, and category winners announced, on March 21, 2013 at the Salute To Manufacturing Awards Luncheon at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, South Carolina.  Awards will be presented in the Small, Midsized and Large Manufacturer Categories.  A private best-practices forum will precede the luncheon.

Presented annually by The Silver Crescent Foundation, the 2013 Silver Crescent Awards are co-sponsored by the South Carolina Research Authority (SCRA) and by SC Biz News, LLC.  Sponsorship opportunities remain available for both the awards luncheon and best-practices forum.

Tickets to the luncheon are $50 per person, and are available online at  or from program administrator Sharon Halsey at (803) 657-6183.  Sponsorship packages inclusive of tickets are also available.  Seating is limited, and interested attendees are encouraged to secure their tickets immediately.

“We encourage as many manufacturers, as well as suppliers-partners to manufacturers, to attend the luncheon program and mix and mingle with our state’s top manufacturing executives,” said Smith.  “By being in attendance, they will benefit from networking with top manufacturing executives, and learn some of the innovative programs and capabilities of the state’s leading manufacturers.  It’s a great opportunity for Palmetto State businesses.”
