DELAND, Fla., Nov. 22, 2013

DELAND, Fla., Nov. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --FloMet, LLC, an ARC Group
Worldwide Company, has been awarded the Best Practices in Continuous
Improvement Award from the VMA (Value-Added Manufacturing Alliance). VMA is a
premier manufacturing alliance located in Florida. The VMA was founded in
1980 by manufacturers and is the voice of over 400 local manufacturers
providing information, education and opportunities to help manufacturers grow
and succeed. This year marks the 8^th Annual Manufacturers Showcase held by
the VMA and FloMet, LLC will be awarded the Best Practices in Continuous
Improvement Award. This distinguished award is given to the company who has
displayed the most successful efforts in continuous improvement and has
achieved the greatest results from their manufacturing operations.

Mr. Jason Young, Chairman and CEO, said, "I am proud of the results FloMet has
been able to achieve with their expertise in lean manufacturing. This award
is a great example of the continuous improvement culture we have at the ARC
Group companies and the importance lean technologies play in our manufacturing
process. The FloMet team is very deserving of their recognition by VMA here."

During the award evaluation period, FloMet was able to substantially reduce
manufacturing scrap by 25% and reduce inventory in capital dollars through a
just-in-time approach by 10%, resulting in increased inventory turns. FloMet
accomplished this through lean technologies which included the adoption and
implementation of an organizational program referred to as 7S. The 7S program
is a hybrid concept of 5S (Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardize, and
Sustain) with two important additions; Safety which must be of paramount
concern, and Spirit to keep the forward momentum. The proven success in these
fundamental approaches to lean manufacturing allowed FloMet to help decrease
manufacturing costs and deliver more bottom line profitability to ARC Group
Worldwide shareholders.
