The hunt is on to find the UK’s top manufacturer
20 March 2012
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) is on the lookout for the UK’s best manufacturers as it launches Manufacturing Excellence 2012. Manufacturing Excellence works with all manufacturing businesses, whatever their size, age, sector or area of expertise to help improve their processes and showcase their successes and innovations. The Awards are run in partnership with The ERA Foundation, Lombard and WMG, with sponsorship from Arup and PwC.
Philippa Oldham, Head of Manufacturing at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, said: “If we want to see the UK economy thrive once again, we need to see a resurgence in UK manufacturing. Manufacturing Excellence not only identifies and celebrates outstanding UK manufacturing businesses but can also help underperforming companies improve.
“Past winners have shown that by taking part and adopting best practice they can thrive, grow and become global players. We’re calling for businesses to apply and take advantage of the programme. Entry is free and there is up to £20,000 free consultancy advice up for grabs as well as the chance to win at the prestigious Manufacturing Excellence Awards in November.”
Last year’s winners included mechanical seals manufacturer AESSEAL, transit packaging manufacturer Loadhog, train manufacturer Bombardier and Agfa Graphics. To read more about their stories, click here.
As well as Awards for Best Manufacturer and Best SME, categories for this year are: Business Development and Change Management; Customer Focus; Financial Management; Innovation in Products and Processes; Logistics and Operational Efficiency; Partnership with Education; People Effectiveness; Sustainable Manufacturing; and Most Improved Company.
