Manufacturing Sciences Corporation Celebrates 20 Years of Excellence
OAK RIDGE, TN – On June 8, 2005, Manufacturing Sciences Corporation (MSC) celebrated its 20th anniversary of successful operations in Oak Ridge, TN. MSC’s Oak Ridge facility opened in June of 1985, and over the past 20 years has become a leader in the specialty metals processing industry.
“MSC has come a long way over the last 20 years,” said MSC President David Brown. “Our company’s success is due in large part to the team work and dedication of our employees. This celebration was held to recognize the hard work and dedication of our employees as we acknowledge their contributions to the continued success of MSC.”
MSC has been recognized for its safety practices by the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Association (TOSHA). In March 2001, MSC received the STAR award which is part of the State of Tennessee’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) designed to recognize workplaces that have implemented strong safety and health programs. The program establishes a cooperative relationship among management, employees, and TOSHA. MSC was awarded re-certification of the STAR Award three years later in June 2003.
