The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) is on the hunt for the UK’s top manufacturer.
Applications are now open for Manufacturing Excellence 2012, which is an awards programme that works to promote and support the best of manufacturing in the UK.
Up for grabs are awards such as Best Manufacturer, Best SME, and Most Improved Company.
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.”
Manufacturing Excellence 2012 is run in partnership with The ERA Foundation, Lombard and WMG and sponsored by Arup and PwC.
