Representatives of Hi-Force Daventry were recently invited to the 2011 EEF Midlands Region Future Manufacturing Awards at Warwickshire, U.K.
Finalist in four categories
Attended by representatives of over 40 companies, short listed from an original list of over 800 entries, Hi-Force Daventry was selected as a finalist in four categories, namely The Outstanding Export Award (5 finalists), The Business Growth Award (8 finalists), The Innovative Operating Practises Award (7 finalists) and The Environmental Efficiency Award (5 finalists), which saw Hi-Force receive a well merited Runner Up Award Certificate.
Whilst presenting the award to Hi-Force Group Managing Director, Kevin Brown, the judging panel comments were, "The judges felt that the Hi-Force entry conveyed an integrated method for reducing environmental impact. By encouraging a hybrid approach towards environmental initiatives, Hi-Force has worked hard to improve environmental efficiencies and to increase productivity."
Commenting at the event Kevin Brown enthused: "Given that this is the first year Hi-Force has entered the EEF Awards competition, we are delighted to have been short listed in four categories, more than any other finalist. Hi-Force is delighted to accept the Runner Up Award in the Environmental Efficiency category as this clearly demonstrates our company's desire to be an environmentally conscious manufacturer and employer. To be recognised alongside such major companies as Rolls Royce and Caterpillar is indeed a great honour for Hi-Force."
