Sigmatex, a global leader in the design and manufacture of carbon fibre textiles to the Composites industry, has been selected as the winner of the Bentley Motors sponsored Company of the Year award at the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) Awards, recognising its continued commitment to the development of the low carbon vehicle supply chain.
During the awards, Sigmatex was also awarded the DHL Logistics Excellence Award for its implementation of a series of process and product changes that optimises package size and footprint. This has led to a reduced number of deliveries, resulting in a significant reduction in emissions. At the same awards, Sigmatex was highly commended for the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) sponsored Manufacturing Excellence Award for delivering a major operational transformation project in an under-performing production cell through the implementation of LEAN principles and developing a culture of continuous improvement, a model that is now being rolled out through other parts of the organisation.
Paul McMullan, Commercial Director at Sigmatex, said; “It is great to see our commitment to vehicle lightweighting being recognised by industry. This, alongside our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint is a significant focus for the company. It is an honour to receive the Company of the Year Award alongside the Logistics Excellence Award, and I would like to thank my colleagues at Sigmatex for all of their efforts ensuring our success.”
