Friday, June 3, 2022 - Rome, NY

Cathedral Corporation is pleased to announce that they are one of 23 manufacturing companies in a field of over 160 nominees selected as finalists for the Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence (SMBE) Awards.

The Sterling Council and FloridaMakes collaborate on the SMBE awards to recognize the state's high-performing manufacturers. Companies are judged in several criteria categories: leadership, strategy, customers, measurement, analysis and knowledge management, workforce, and operations. Cathedral's client, Hillsborough County Tax Collector's Office, nominated Cathedral, saying, "Cathedral is an invaluable supplier to us at the Hillsborough County Tax Collector's Office. Their ability to merge complex monthly data into our county template to create personalized registration renewals and parking permit applications is an important process and impacts our reputation. Cathedral's programming, data processing, printing and mailing services all help us meet and exceed our customer requirements. Cathedral also CASS certifies our data to obtain the lowest possible postage rates and increase deliverability. This increases our community members’ satisfaction and reduces tax dollar spending. In addition, Cathedral prepares Statistical Reports which support our continuous improvement processes in reducing waste and rejections and promoting change initiatives."

"We are honored to be a finalist along with these other impressive manufacturing companies. Our goal at Cathedral is to meet and exceed our customers' expectations. It is gratifying to have Hillsborough County Tax Collector's Office nominate us for this distinction," said Marianne W. Gaige, Chairman and CEO, Cathedral Corporation. "We also appreciate the support and resources that FloridaMakes and Sterling Council continue to offer to the Florida manufacturing sector."
