Hard Won Prestige
The International TPM Institute has developed the criteria for 2 prestigious recognitions in TPM manufacturing – one is the “TPM Plant of the Year,” and the other is the “TPM Award.” Only a handful of plants ever receive either of these recognitions, and only a handful of TPM consulting firms even grant them. The awards have become a mark of distinction and a symbol of superiority in the increasingly competitive manufacturing landscape. Earning them means joining the ranks of companies like Mercedes, Bosch, Siemens and Ford Motor Company – to name a few.
Please join us for an upcoming TPM Conference
TPM Plant of the Year Award
The TPM Plant of the Year recognition is granted annually at the International TPM Conference, to the single best performing plant among all applicants. 2015 Marks the 20th anniversary of this Conference. Historically the candidates have been judged by Instandhaltung Magazine, and International TPM Institute after in depth application review process. Also, the competition has been primarily within Germany, but in recent years has expanded to include a second category for international winners.
The TPM Plant of the Year winner is a central feature at the annual International TPM Conference, which takes place in the home-city of that year’s winning plant. TPM Institute consultants make presentations as does the “Plant of the Year” (the winning company), who also opens their plant to conference participants to see the winning TPM installation first hand. We hope you’ll join us.Find out about this year's conference!

The TPM Award“To be considered a successful installation, teams have to prove that they have accomplished all TPM results, and practice TPM continuously. The TPM-Certificate is a brass plaque provided by the Institute and is registered by the Institute. When all teams are certified, a world-class TPM installation has been accomplished and the plant has earned the TPM AWARD.” – Edward H. Hartmann
The standard requirement for being considered for the TPM Award, is that all of a factory’s centers must pass our audits. When this happens, the entire company has reached a world-class standard.
