Renishaw's assembly facility at Woodchester in Gloucestershire has been named as the UK's Best Electronics & Electrical Plant at the Best Factory Awards 2012 held on 28th September in London. The award was achieved against strong competition from global brands, with the Renishaw operation being awarded the title ahead of Sony UK Technology Centre and Siemens MR Magnet Technology.
The judges, which were led by Cranfield University's Institute of Management, noted Renishaw's “unerring commitment to in-house manufacture” which it considers essential to ensure quality, delivery and to support product development timescales. The award citation said, “Ultimately, the combination of astute supply chain management, strategic operations planning and class-leading automated technology make this stand-out OEM a worthy winner of the Best Electronics & Electrical Plant prize.”
