MONROE, Mich. - La-Z-Boy's factory in Dayton, Tenn., has been given the prestigious Best Plants award from Industry Week magazine.
     The 1.2 million-square-foot factory was one of six North American manufacturing facilities to receive the award for 2012.
     Winners will be honored at an awards ceremony during Industry Week's annual Best Plants Conference, which takes place April 22-24 in Greenville, S.C.

"I applaud and thank all of our associates for their hard work and dedication to ensure our Dayton facility is a world-class manufacturing operation that is unmatched by others in the industry."
