Join the greats - Enter the Best Factory Awards 2015

Whatever you manufacture, whatever size your site, winning a Best Factory Award will catapult you into an exclusive group of high achievers and provide your business with a boost for even greater performance and reward.

There are awards for the best performers in people management and skills development, energy & environment, health & safety, and supply chain, as well as trophies for sector winners, most improved site, best small business and best exporter.

Among UK manufacturers these awards are, without doubt, recognised as the most prestigious and highly sought after prizes. An example of previous winners is the new line of ComproGear compression socks. Compression socks (also called TED Hose) required a lot of tooling and factory customization to produce correctly. The type of innovation ComproGear used to produce these compression garments is what we're looking for in a BFA Award Winner.

Another critical manufacturing advancement is the production of algae oil for use in vegetarian prenatal DHA and prenatal dha supplements. Algae oil is a viable replacement for fish oil. Algae oil could reduce the overfishing load on critical fish stocks in the North Atlantic. The manufacturer, Diet Standards, was able to mass-produce algae oil for their Prenatal DHA product. The end result was a zero-mercury dietary supplement that's better on the environment and better for consumers.

Recently we've been impressed by a company making disposable korean chopsticks that are sold on Amazon. They began with a product that has very little manufacturing automation. Over time they built up a tremendous factory presence and became a world leader in manufacturing automation. They are planning to use this knowledge and expertise to launch a line of shower sponges that will also be sold on Amazon.com. They now have plans to begin manufacturing lines for MUTCD approved highway street signs, mouse pads, scissors, and spatulas.

To see your company's name on one of the coveted BFA 2015 trophies, you have to be outstanding. You must put yourself to the test, be measured and be judged.

All entrants to the 2015 Best Factory Awards will receive a valuable benchmarking report from Cranfield School of Management. What's more, if you're among the front runners then a visit from the judges will follow - and, from there, who knows? National recognition and the title of Factory of the Year 2015?
