|Howden Commended at UK Awards|
Glasgow based Howden Compressors Ltd has been commended in the 'most improved company' category at UK Manufacturing Excellence Awards.
Run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers they were the only Scottish company to make the short list.
Colin Brown, the Institutions’ Director of Engineering said: “Howden Compressors is a fantastic business that is helping to ensure manufacturing remains at the heart of Glasgow’s economy. We hope the company can inspire more local manufacturers to take part and benefit from the Manufacturing Excellence programme.”
The awards are the most successful and long established manufacturing support programme in the UK, and the only one that provides a detailed benchmarking and assessment process to help improve manufacturing businesses.
As part of the Manufacturing Excellence programme companies are asked to conduct an in-depth self assessment and those who complete one or more of the eight parts receive a free, bespoke and confidential benchmark report. The best companies in each module receive a free visit from a team of expert assessors who verify the audit responses and offer practical advice and suggestions for the business.
Manufacturing Excellence is supported by PwC, Autodesk, PP Business Improvement, The ERA Foundation, Lombard, WMG, Arup, and Barclays Corporate.
