UK’s best factory in Cornwall?


A Cornish manufacturer has been shortlisted for the 2012 Best Factory Awards (BFA).

Bude-based storage solutions manufacturer Bott Ltd is in the running, along with 13 other companies from across the UK.

The award programme celebrates manufacturing excellence in the UK and is run by Cranfield School of Management in partnership with the magazine Works Management.

Dr Marek Szwejczewski, director of the Best Factory Awards, commented: “All of the finalists are beacons of excellence, driven by the desire to improve and excel and are growing despite the flat British economy.”

The winners will be announced at the BFA ceremony taking place on September 28 at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London.
