NORCROSS, Ga. — Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership’s (GaMEP’s) Faces of Manufacturing program highlights dedicated men and women in Georgia whose talents and contributions in the manufacturing industry impact local communities and the state economy. The organization recognizes a different individual each month of the year, and Prashant Dave was chosen from a field of more than 100 applicants.
Kelley Hundt, region manager, GaMEP, presented the award to Dave during a ceremony held at Triatek headquarters. Also in attendance were Jen Yun, manager of global business development for the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and Megan Lesko, membership development manager of the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce.
As the director of production and procurement, Dave designed Triatek’s production workflow, continuously works to improve production processes, and ensures a quality product is manufactured. Dave successfully manages raw material vendor relationships that allow Triatek to offer customized, cost-effective solutions for customers. He hires and trains a diverse manufacturing staff and facilitates a positive work environment with fewer turnovers than the average manufacturing line.
“It was a great honor to receive the Faces of Manufacturing Award from the Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership at Georgia Tech,” said Dave. “I could not have done it without the support of my entire manufacturing team who is like a family to me. It has been enormously satisfying to be a part of Triatek’s growth, and I hope my contributions will benefit the company, its employees, and our customers by providing important, life-saving products for health care facilities and laboratories for years to come.”
