ICON Program Nominated for Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award 

The Integrated Casting Order Network (ICON) is a unique partnership between the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), the Non-Ferrous Founders’ Society and the U.S. foundry industry. ICON helps drive procurement solutions to buyers responsible for acquiring the replacement castings needed by our nation’s defense and military customers from domestic foundries and die casters. 

ICON has been nominated for the prestigious Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award (DMTAA), which is intended to recognize individuals from government and the private sector most responsible for outstanding technical accomplishments that further the achievement of the vision of the Department of Defense (DoD) Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program. The DoD ManTech vision is to “realize a responsive world-class manufacturing capability to affordably meet the Warfighters’ needs throughout the defense system life cycle.” 

The Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award (DMTAA) award was established in 1999 and is sponsored by the Joint Defense Manufacturing Technology Panel (JDMTP). Winners will be announced during the Defense Manufacturing Conference scheduled to be held in December 2020.
