Tom Brake MP encourages Carshalton and Wallington bussineses to demonstrate maufacturing excellence

January 14, 2004 12:00 AM

Tom Brake MP is urging manufacturers in Carshalton and Wallington to test their competitiveness in the marketplace by entering the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' (iMechE) Manufacturing Excellence (MX2004) Awards. Now in its 25th year, the Manufacturing Excellence Awards examines UK manufacturers' competitiveness in best practice and innovation across six industrial disciplines: customer focus; product innovation; resource efficiency; people effectiveness and IT.

All manufacturing companies based in the UK are eligible to enter, no matter their size, and there is a special award to encourage SME's to grow and prosper. Furthermore, to ensure UK manufacturing remains a world leader in quality and service, the IMechE is offering all companies that apply a free confidential benchmarking report to ensure they are performing to the acknowledged standards of best practice.

Entrance to MX2004 is free and supported by a prestigious group of organizations including the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the EEF, the Manufacturing Advisory Service and the Manufacturing Foundation.

Tom said, "Manufacturing is vitally important to the UK economy. Not only does it account for 20% of GDP, but in the international marketplace the UK cannot continue to rely on service industries alone. Awards such as these acknowledge the hard work and efforts of all those involved with manufacturing in the UK. Carshalton and Wallington has a long history of manufacturing excellence of which I am proud, and therefore I encourage those involved to enter the Manufacturing excellence Awards to receive the recognition of excellence they deserve."

To enter the MX2004 awards, or to apply for the free benchmark service, please contact Stephanie Levin, Project Executive, at the IMechE on tel: 0207 304 6815 or email:mx2004@imeche.org.uk.
