— Two of Ce­cil County’s largest man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies will be hon­ored as “Cham­pi­ons of Mary­land Man­u­fac­tur­ing” by the Re­gional Man­u­fac­tur­ing In­sti­tute (RMI) of Mary­land in a cer­e­mony in Baltimore County on Nov. 30.

Terumo Med­i­cal Cor­po­ra­tion and W. L. Gore & As­so­ci­ates were se­lected from Ce­cil County, said county Direc­tor of Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Lisa Webb dur­ing a meet­ing of the county’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment com­mis­sion at Ce­cil Col­lege on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

“Ce­cil County is proud to have a thriv­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try,” she added. “Terumo and Gore are two in­no­va­tive global lead­ers that pos­i­tively con­trib­ute to the lives of peo­ple all over


the world, while pro­vid­ing high-qual­ity jobs here.”

The Re­gional Man­u­fac­tur­ing In­sti­tute of Mary­land came up with the idea to rec­og­nize man­u­fac­tur­ers who have helped cre­ated a pos­i­tive im­age of man­u­fac­tur­ing and helped change the way pol­i­cy­mak­ers, ed­u­ca­tors and the me­dia view the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try in Mary­land.

At least one man­u­fac­turer in each of Mary­land’s 23 coun­ties and Baltimore City will be rec­og­nized for their ac­com­plish­ments in the ar­eas of phi­lan­thropy, in­no­va­tion, cre­at­ing prod­ucts that im­prove lives, hir­ing an in­clu­sive work­force, vi­sion­ary lead­er­ship, cul­ture change or STEM en­gage­ment of stu­dents in­ter­ested in man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­reers.

A to­tal of 140 com­pa­nies will be hon­ored as cham­pi­ons this year.

The event will show­case in­di­vid­u­als, or­ga­ni­za­tions and projects that best ex­em­plify the di­ver­sity of man­u­fac­tur­ing in Mary­land. Each cham­pion will also be fea­tured in the 2016 RMI Cham­pi­ons of Mary­land Man­u­fac­tur­ing Year­book, which will be dis­trib­uted at the cer­e­mony Nov. 30 and given to law­mak­ers, ed­u­ca­tors and me­dia mem­bers in RMI’s on­go­ing ef­fort to en­hance the im­age of the man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try.

“This should be a great evening for our in­dus­try,” RMI Pres­i­dent Michael Gali­azzo said ear­lier this week. “Ev­ery cham­pion should know that by be­ing part of the tribute din­ner, their great sto­ries help RMI tell the larger story of man­u­fac­tur­ing at the county level.”

The event is sched­uled for 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 30 at Martin’s West in Wind­sor Mill.
