Firstly we received the news that our owner and Managing Director, Helena Flowers has been nominated for a ‘Woman Who Achieves in Leadership’ award. The Woman Who Inspires Network launched in October 2016, in partnership with the FSB (Warwickshire & Coventry Branch). The nomination will be considered and Finalists announced on International Women’s day at Coombe Abbey. Of course we wish Helena all the best, as our inspiring leader and to current and future generations of the manufacturing industry.
To follow that, which took some doing we received the amazing news that we are finalists in the Greater Birmingham Chambers Awards. In the Excellence in manufacturing Award.
The award nomination revolves around the innovation and investment that has been made at Andel Plastics within the last year. We are all aware of the pressures on manufacturing costs and media focus on plastic components and recycling. This year has seen the development within Andel of more automated closed loop systems, that enable automatic sprue trimming (the waste product) and then recycling of this within a closed loop system. Ensuring an efficient and cost effective component for our customers whilst being environmentally focussed.
We are so proud of both these nominations and the finalist position, reflecting the investment that we have made in equipment, training and people.
