Over 50 of Britain’s top manufacturing companies have made it through to the finals of the UK’s largest and most rigorous industry awards programme: The Manufacturer MX Awards (TMMX Awards).
The finalists go through to the second round of the competition where judging teams travel the length and breadth of the UK to visit the factories to gather first-hand evidence of their entries in action or present at a judging day.
Judges include previous TMMX Awards winners, Fellows from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), representatives from each of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult Centres (HVMC), leading academics and industry experts.
TMMX Awards are organised by The Manufacturer in partnership with IMechE. It is a matter of pride for both organisers that the experience provides real value to participants, above and beyond anything offered by similar awards schemes. After each round of judging, every entrant is provided with feedback from judges, a particularly valuable feature during the second round, when judges visit entrants onsite. Their expert assessment of what they discover during this detailed process has been described by previous entrants as a ‘free consultancy’ report, helping them benchmark themselves against the very best in the manufacturing sector.
Commenting on this year’s programme, managing director of The Manufacturer, Grace Gilling said: “TMMX Awards is one of my favourite things we do at The Manufacturer and I am delighted that this year we have a real variety of companies taking part. Against a continued backdrop of uncertainty, it is fantastic to be showcasing excellence in UK manufacturing across many different disciplines and to have the enthusiastic support of our numerous sponsors.”
Dr Jenifer Baxter, Head of Engineering at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers said, “The Institution of Mechanical Engineers is delighted that we are continuing our partnership with the TMMX Awards, which recognise excellence across UK manufacturing. Manufacturing is one of the major drivers of our economy and a sector where we see rapid innovation and technological advancement that requires engineers to keep up with this pace of change. Companies that put themselves forward for the TMMX Awards will benefit from free benchmarking and professional advice based on an audit of their business. This type of advice will assist them in driving continual improvement within their businesses enabling them to thrive in competitive markets.”
The winners will be announced at The Manufacturer MX Awards ceremony and gala dinner taking place on 14 November at Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The evening will be the culmination and highlight of Digital Manufacturing Week – attracting over 800 attendees to celebrate the very best of British industry over a sumptuous 3 course dinner with a very special guest speaker!
Congratulations to the finalists!
