World-leading fleet van converter, manufacturer and supplier of workshop equipment and workplace systems Bott has been highly commended in the Judge’s Special Award category of the Best Factory Awards 2012.
The company, which has production facilities in Bude in Cornwall, Germany and Hungary, was awarded the accolade at a glittering ceremony held in London’s Sheraton Hotel, Park Lane, attended by some of the UK’s largest manufacturing companies.
The Best Factory Awards are held every year, and are organised by Works Management magazine in partnership with Cranfield School of Management; a top international business school. The awards aim to celebrate excellence in the manufacturing industry, bringing together some of the top UK manufacturers.
The Judges Special Award category, in which Bott was highly commended, recognises manufacturers that are rich in potential and are ‘ones to watch’. Bott is a high-end brand with a track record envied by all its competitors. Making more than standard shelves, drawers, trolleys and racks, Bott recently fitted out two satellite-linked, command and control fire service vehicles, for example.
Bott has also recently invested in their factory in Bude which includes new CNC punch press and panel bender technology.
Clive Woodward, CEO (Bott Limited), said; “The commendation is a tribute to the hard work that everyone at Bott has put in during the last twelve months and shows our business has potential and is on the rise.
“We are determined to improve year on year and the Best Factory Awards is a great way to gauge progress. Along with the commendation in the Judge’s Special Award we were nominated for Best Engineering Plant and Most Improved Plant. It’s really good to have our achievements recognised this way, especially when you look at the companies that we were up against.
“We are now determined to come to next year’s awards even stronger and leave with, hopefully, victories under our belt.”
