Through the award, the Canadian Plastics Industries Association recognizes companies who are pushing the envelope in terms of technology and introducing innovating ideas that push the manufacturing industry forward. Smart Attend was nominated, and group of committee members identified that Smart Attend would be a worthy receiver of the award.

Smart Attend was founded in 2014 with the aim of presenting real-time machine production data remotely. Spending four years of development time, Smart Attend underwent a rigorous prototype and testing phase that saw the system installed onto everything from CNC equipment, to large tonnage Injection Molding machines. Since then, Smart Attend has focused heavily on making machine monitoring easy, and providing a solution that can be retro-fitted onto older machines to re-introduce them with new, modern technology. Today, Smart Attend can be found in numerous factories across Canada and the United States and is continuously expanding to new industries and regions across the world.
