MHI (Manufactured Housing Institute) is the organization representing all segments of the manufactured and modular housing industries, including manufacturers, retailers, community owners, suppliers, financial institutions, state associations and developers. Every year industry leaders vote for the companies that are considered the best in their class. Nominations for Manufacturer of the Year were made by members of the MHI Manufacturers Division and all MHI members were eligible to vote in the selection process, making this award the most prestigious honor bestowed in the industry. This year, the award for Manufacturer of the Year 2014 was presented to Cavco Industries on April 30, 2014, during the 2014 National Congress & Expo for Manufactured and Modular Housing, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
