This prestigious award was collected by our Continuous Improvement Coordinator, Gary McMillan and our Quality Assurance Coordinator Douglas Burns at the SC21 Taskforce Conference within the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Coventry on 8th November 2016.
As an accredited SC21 company we are committed to achieving high performance in both Business Excellence and Manufacturing Excellence. Coupled with common performance metrics for Quality and Delivery, we are now performing as a leaner and more effective collaborative working organisation.
SC21 companies recognise that sustained success in our industry requires positive relationships in all directions. Using the SC21 relationship code of practice we have identified the level of relationship needed and are objectively focusing upon the areas that need improvement.
