FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – September 10th, 2015. Optricity was recently awarded Corporate Supply Chain of the Year at the Supply Chain Management Summit (SCMS) hosted at Bryant University in Providence, Rhode Island. This award recognizes a corporation’s positive impact to its customers within supply chain and logistics.
The Annual SCMS is an event designed to encourage in-depth discussion about the most relevant supply chain challenges and solutions. This year’s Summit included educational and informative keynote addresses from Eugene Campbell of The Walt Disney Company, Lois Kelly of Foghound and Richard Armstrong of Armstrong and Associates. Break-out sessions included topics such as slotting optimization, distribution center design, packaging, security, risks and improving supply chain performance. In addition to educational programming, the SCMS also presents awards to individuals and companies within three different categories: Supply Chain/Logistics Leader of the Year, Emerging Young Professional Leader Award, and Corporate Supply Chain of the Year Award.
Each year the SCMS Committee reviews nominations for the award categories. The Corporate Supply Chain of the Year Award is presented to an organization that has used innovative supply chain management and logistics practices to advance its business and deliver a positive impact to its customers. The organization must demonstrate that supply chain is not an afterthought, but a driving force in the strategic planning process and tactical execution of the company’s day to day business activities. “This recognition from the SCMS is an honor signifying that what we do every day does make an impact within the supply chain,” states Dan Basmajian, President and CEO of Optricity. “We greatly appreciate this award and the continued opportunities we have to support our clients in reaching their goals.”
The Supply Chain Management (SCM) Summit is a conference presented by Banneker Industries and Bryant University that brings together supply chain industry executives and subject matter experts to learn about leading supply chain management strategies, share best practices, and network with colleagues.
