Alan McLenaghan - Site Director, Saint Gobain Glass UK

"It was a bonus to be shortlisted and have a day with the Cranfield and Works Management judges at the factory. The award apart, their judging time and the benchmarking report would have cost at least £10K on a consultancy basis! Getting to the final was a real morale boost."



Sponsors' Testimonials

Mike McCartney, Unite the Union

"The BFA sponsorship programme delivers to us a diverse mix of marketing activities with one strong common thread; it hits the whole of our manufacturing market at the most senior levels. It also offers huge opportunity to network and engage with Britain's best factories and position Unite as an organisation that seeks to achieve the highest standards with all of its varied activities."

Donna Hopkins, TBM Consulting Group

"TBM quite simply finds the BFA its most rewarding activity of the year and receives a high level of investment in return. Real leads, real visibility and real orders have been a part of this hugely important marketing plank. It stays firmly at the top of my must-do list."
