MIDDLETOWN, Conn., Jan. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PAS Technologies Inc. ( announced that its Hillsboro, Ohio facility was named a finalist in the 2015 IndustryWeek Best Plants Awards competition.

The facility repairs and rebuilds engine components to OEM specifications, saving aircraft owners and operators a significant amount of money over the purchase of new components.

The IndustryWeek annual salute to outstanding North American manufacturing facilities serves two purposes: to recognize plants that are on the leading edge of efforts to increase competitiveness, enhance customer satisfaction, and create stimulating and rewarding work environments; and to encourage other manufacturing managers and work teams to emulate the honorees by adopting world-class practices, technologies, and improvement strategies. Entrants are judged against a number of exacting criteria, including whether they have made a comprehensive effort to achieve world-class manufacturing capability.

PAS Hillsboro was among 20 manufacturing operations that comprise the 2015 slate of IndustryWeek Best Plants finalists. According to IndustryWeek, the finalists demonstrate admirable manufacturing performance metrics, as well as practices that exhibit a comprehensive focus on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.

Further, the facility has improved significantly on a number of key business metrics including on-time delivery, first-pass yield, customer rejection rates, safety, and customer satisfaction.

PAS was not among the winners announced by IndustryWeek on January 19, 2016. The winners of the 2015 Best Plants Award will be honored at the 2016 IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference and Expo, scheduled for May 3-5, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois.
