The Manufacturing Institute has honored 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. 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 crossed paths with Muthana in 2014 when Pioneer Service was looking to implement a new ERP system to simplify its manufacturing.
“Manufacturers are makers, and women have been underrepresented in this industry for too long,” Muthana says. “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.”
