Four companies with local factories here will be honored tonight for their contributions to the manufacturing industry.

The Regional Manufacturing Institute will honor McCormick and Co. Inc., Unilever, Dap Inc. and Northrop Grumman Corp.

The World Trade Center Institute, an association of more than 300 world trade centers around the world that promotes economic development and international trade, will also be recognized at the event at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

The companies and the institute are being honored for their participation in the Inside Series, a program in which companies invite other manufacturers to their facilities and talk about how they succeeded.

The program is run by the Regional Manufacturing Institute and the World Trade Center Institute.

At the ceremony, the Maryland Manufacturers' Council, a nonprofit group of state and local organizations concerned with preserving the manufacturing base, is expected to name House Speaker Casper R. Taylor Jr. legislator of the year.

Sens. Walter M. Baker, Patrick J. Hogan and Andrew P. Harris, and Dels. John A. Hurson, Katherine A. Klausmeier and Kenneth D. Schisler will also be honored at the event.
