The awards programme, now in its 25th year, celebrates manufacturing excellence and honours the crème de la crème of UK manufacturing. And as you’d expect, we’re in good company.
Previous winners include Coca-Cola Enterprises, Brita Water Filter Systems, Diageo and Leyland Trucks. Among the fifteen names shortlisted with us this year were Arla Foods, Diageo, 3M UK and Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems; purveyors of everything from nutrition supplements and gas sensors to superconducting magnets and shower panels.
How it works...
Recently we were visited by the Best Factory Awards judges - perhaps the most experienced, discerning and judicious manufacturing experts in the UK today. During the visit the assessors toured our premises and met with our workforce and management.
Once all finalists’ sites were toured, the judges selected their winner for each prize category. They then crowned one of the category award winners as Factory of the Year. The competition, run by Cranfield University’s School of Management, culminates at an awards lunch at the National Motorcycle Museum and Conference Centre in Birmingham, where all winners are announced.
We are extremely proud to have won one of the Best Electronics and Electrical Plant award. Not just this, but to be a finalist in the headline award as well amongst some of the toughest competition, we are very proud of the entire team and their hard work in achieving this!
