Xaar has been awarded Manufacturing Site of the Year for a third time by TechWorks, an industry organisation based in the UK.
The TechWorks Awards ceremony celebrated key electronics innovations, people and companies for 2017 from across the UK and Ireland. It has been running as an annual event since 2001.
Xaar picked up its ‘Manufacturing Site of the Year’ award from BBC technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones, who commended the company’s great performance in 2017, and also reserved special praise for its outstanding example of collaboration with other member sites.
The award was decided by an independent panel of expert judges, who were particularly impressed with Xaar’s systematic approach and drive to improve performance through continuous improvement, new product development and product cost reduction activities.
‘We are delighted once again to receive this prestigious award from TechWorks,’ commented Doug Edwards, CEO of Xaar. ‘It is recognition for the hard work of many individuals and teams throughout Xaar to increase our agility and flexibility for meeting the changing needs of our customers and their businesses, in order to achieve our 2020 goal.’
