Alongside such global giants as BP and PriceWaterhouseCoopers, ERIKS is an official sponsor of the 2009 Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Awards. The MX Awards are run by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers and attract entries from manufacturing businesses in all sectors.
The MX Awards programme is the premier annual award scheme for the UK manufacturing industry, supporting and recognising manufacturing success. Winners can gain high profile coverage in national newspapers and on television and every entrant receives a customised benchmark report rating their performance against best practice and highlighting areas for improvement.
Categories for the awards include the Arup Award for Sustainable Manufacturing and the Autodesk Award for Product Innovation while the overall prizes are the BERR Manufacturing Advisory Service Award for Manufacturing Excellence and the National Skills Academy for Manufacturing Award for Manufacturing Excellence Best Small or Medium Enterprise. For 2009 ERIKS is directly sponsoring the MX Award for Financial Management.
"ERIKS, as Europe´s leading supplier of industrial products and services," Says Martin Stainton, Commercial Director ERIKS Integrated Solutions, "understands that good financial management is critical to manufacturing success, which is why we got involved in the programme. We help manufacturers, through outsourcing, by dramatically reducing stock levels, lowering stores overheads, leveraging ERIKS buying power and increasing MRO procurement efficiency."
The closing date for entry forms is the 30th January while the awards ceremony itself takes place in London on the 25th June 2009. More information on the awards can be found at: www.mxawards.org/home.htm.
