The Manufacturing Institute announces Women in Manufacturing STEP Ahead Award winner

The Manufacturing Institute announced it awarded Global Shop Solutions’ customer Aneesa Muthana, president and owner of Pioneer Service Inc, with the Women in Manufacturing (STEP) (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) Ahead Award on April 20, 2017.

The STEP Ahead Awards honors women who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in their careers and represent all levels of the manufacturing industry, from the factory floor to the C-suite.

“It’s a pleasure to know and be able to work alongside Aneesa,” says Global Shop Solutions CEO and president Dusty Alexander. “I can’t wait to see the work that she continues and how her positive influence is shaping and changing the manufacturing industry.”

Global Shop Solutions first met Aneesa in 2014 when Pioneer Service was looking to implement a new ERP system to simplify their manufacturing.

Aneesa says she is “honored to receive this award. Manufacturers are makers, and women have been under-represented in this industry for too long. The process of bringing people together to make something that will go on to serve a bigger purpose is where my passion lies. Knowing that the parts that leave my shop are contributing to the world at large, touching lives and benefiting people, fuels my passion.”
