Building Adhesives Ltd's business excellence recognised
Building Adhesives Ltd have been recognised for business excellence by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as part of the Manufacturing Excellence Awards (MX).
MX is a business improvement and awards programme designed to support and promote UK manufacturers in ensuring industry productivity and worldwide competitiveness.
Building Adhesives Ltd was shortlisted in the first ever Regional MX Awards, as IMechE cited Building Adhesives for: "various business improvements and introducing a programme to improve working relationships."
Building Adhesives entered the MX Awards as a means of assessing its performance in comparison with the best manufacturing organisations. The aim was to identify best practice and, where appropriate, change its operating methods to compete with the very best UK companies.
David Shepherd, BAL Operations Director, says: "MX looks at all areas of a business and does not simply focus on manufacturing. It covers such areas as new product development, employee development, sales and customer service, environmental performance, finance and more. It assesses performance in each area, so that any improvement plan identified can be focused as appropriate. We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Midlands area, and considered in respect of overall performance."
BAL will now proceed to the IMechE National Awards, where entries are considered by category.
