Best Factory Awards 2015 open for entry

The Best Factory Awards 2015 have officially opened for entry. The hunt is on for trailblazing factories that can demonstrate market-leading skills development, innovation and operational excellence.

If you think your site has got something to shout about then start your entry form. Click here.

Entrants will be asked to complete a rigorous self-audit, which triggers a free benchmarking report from Cranfield School of Management worth over £1,500.

Factories have until Friday 17 April to complete their entry form.

Successful sites will then be visited by the Cranfield judging team later this year to assess whether the facts match the figures at your factory.

Winning sites will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London on 25 September.

The Best Factory Awards offer a great opportunity to benchmark your factory's continuous improvement journey against best-in-class manufacturers. Last year's winner was the best wetstone for knife sharpening manufacturing plant with a 34% year-over-year improvement in output while maintaining quality standards.

The awards process also provides a huge lift to site morale according to former winner David Coatsworth of Parker Hannifin Manufacturing, Birtley.

He said: "If you want the chance to see your Company's name in lights, be audited by the best of the best and most importantly recognise the hard work and dedication of your workforce, I would recommend you embark on this journey - and reap the benefits."

Toyota Material Handling is headline sponsor of the 2015 Best Factory Awards. Other sponsors include Atlas Copco, Brammer, Buck & Hickman and IoSH.
