Industry Lifetime Achievement Awards

The Manufacturing Ledger honors those who have earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from national industry associations that support the manufacturing community. These awards are highlighted throughout the Manufacturing Ledger and can be sorted such that you can view these industry leader's profiles by selecting each award in the main search bar, or by visiting the individual pages for each Lifetime Achievement Award, including the American Precision's own, Machine Tool Hall of Fame.

Thanks to the following associations for collaborating with the American Precision Museum to celebrate the people and progress of machine tools and manufacturing in this exhibit. Profiles of Lifetime Achievement Award recipients from these associations are highlighted and searchable within the Manufacturing Ledger.
