The Philips Respironic’s manufacturing plant in Murrysville, Pa, has been named one of IndustryWeek’s Top 10 Best Plants of 2009. The plant manufactures six of Philips Respironics respiratory and sleep product lines. The 125,000-square-foot facility, which opened in 1990, is one of two manufacturing facilities Philips Respironics operates in the region.
Manufacturers were judged on management practices, customer and supplier relations, employee involvement, productivity, cost reductions, manufacturing flexibility and responsiveness, inventory management, environmental and safety performance, and market results. Philips Respironics will be recognized at IndustryWeek’s annual IW Best Plants conference, April 19-21, in Cleveland.
