The Best Factory Awards 2013
The Best Factory Awards, run in partnership between Works Management and Cranfield
School of Management, have been celebrating Britain’s outstanding manufacturing
talent since 1992.
The awards are an obsession for manufacturing managers across the land who plot,
scheme and dream about one day winning a coveted BFA. Success depends on overcoming
a notoriously tough judging process.
It begins with completing a detailed self-audit questionnaire, which is marked by the judging team at Cranfield
School of Management. Factories that prove themselves as a best in class plant then
go forward to a judging visit where the team will inspect every nook and cranny
of the site to see whether the facts match the figures.
The winners are then revealed and awards presented at a celebratory luncheon that
takes place at
8 Northumberland Avenue, London on 27 September. There are
14 awards are up for grabs including the coveted overall prize of Toyota Material
Handling Factory of the Year.
