#4 REDZONE 2020 AWARDS EDITION

As 'Plant of the Year' winners, Marianna Beauty, explained... being a manufacturer of hair care products for salons, three out of four of their revenue streams essentially disappeared overnight due to Covid-19. To remain a viable business, they realized that they needed to pivot to a totally new category – hand sanitizers and soaps – one that the country desperately needed at that time. “We wouldn’t have been able to do that,” Mike Cate (CEO) explains, “if we didn’t have sound processes, systems and people that were really educated on what was going on both with our customers and on the floor in our manufacturing processes. To me, Redzone is not a system, it’s an entire business process capability that if you embrace it, impacts every phase of your operations.”
