The Manufacturer MX Awards was officially launched earlier this month at an event held at the House of Commons, taking place at The ICC in Birmingham on 26th November 2015.
The Manufacturer MX Awards (TMMX) is an amalgamation of The Manufacturer of the Year Awards run by The Manufacturer and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Awards run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineerscoming together to form The Manufacturer MX Awards.
At the launch, CEO of The Manufacturer, Nick Hussey said: “There are too many awards that lack gravitas and rigour and do nothing to help UK manufacturing. By combining with the Institution today we have established the ultimate benchmark for all UK manufacturers to aspire to.”
Institution of Mechanical Engineers’ President Group Captain Mark Hunt OBE said: “We are delighted to be able to combine forces with The Manufacturer. Manufacturing is at the heart of a healthy UK economy and these awards will not only recognise outstanding achievements in this sector, but will also help drive improvements in business practices of all the companies involved. Taking part gives companies the opportunity to receive valuable advice, free of charge, from world class experts and in a time of fierce competition in business, the feedback provided could make the difference between a company’s success and failure.”
In total there are 13 categories that are up for grabs ranging from ‘Customer Focus’ to ‘Exporter of the Year’ to ‘Partnership with Education’ along with the overall ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ award.
Being shortlisted for an award can increase the media exposure of your company and also get free business feedback from top experts amongst a number of other benefits.
Last year’s overall winner, Peter Digby, Managing Director of Xtrac commented at the launch: “I would encourage all of you to apply for these awards. For us, beating the likes of Rolls-Royce, BAE and Babcock was a fantastic achievement and is a clear acknowledgement of the whole teams’ hard work and dedication.”
