MAN named ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at Made in the Midlands Awards
The Midlands Assembly Network, which SMT Developments is a member of, has capped a year of growth by securing one of the region’s leading business awards.
MAN beat off competition from all over the Midlands to win the ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ Award, impressing a high-profile judging panel with its unique ability to work together to land new contracts.
The collective, which features ten world class sub contracting firms, has landed a number of multi-million pound orders in 2013 after offering customers a single source solution to demanding engineering and production challenges.
A number of these projects have been from overseas and this proved the difference when making the decision.
Phil Rowley, MD at SMT Developments, commented: “To be named ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ is fantastic for the group, especially when you consider the quality of the competition that featured automotive and aerospace tier 1s and high profile original equipment manufacturers.”
He concluded: “It is very pleasing to see that our efforts in developing the MAN Group, its capabilities and awareness are now starting to pay dividends. Recognition by the judges and media and the associated award can only reinforce this belief.”
