(Posted on 11/12/19)
At last week’s prestigious business awards organised by the UK’s Halton Chambers of Commerce, Sandon Global achieved not one but two business awards. The company received “Manufacturer Of The Year”, for demonstrating how their continuous improvement programme has directly benefited customers, as well as how their approach to New Product Development and innovation, allows them to diversify into new markets. Secondly the company received the “Business Of The Year” award, wherein Sandon Global was judged to be the overall winner across all 15 award categories.
Halton Chamber CEO, Rachel Owen, commented “Sandon Global is a shining example of the strength and depth of technical skills and talent within Halton Borough. Sandon Global’s new bespoke facility is expected to create up to 10 apprenticeships each year plus 30 skilled jobs over the next five years, reinforcing the decision made by our panel of judges to select Sandon Global for the Business Of The Year title this year.”
Sandon Global’ CEO John Millington added “I am extremely proud to have received both the awards which are testament to our dedicated, loyal and highly skilled team; working alongside our international network of specialist agents. We are currently preparing for a significant step change in our business. Regardless of the political landscape and uncertainty we have spent time researching and challenging our strategies to the point where we have the conviction and skills to build on our ongoing success. Being recognised by Halton Chamber is very humbling but also reassuring that we are on the right path. The next chapter in the history of our business is one that excites, motivates and drives our business and its people.
This news follows the recent announcement of a brand new site for the advanced manufacturing business. The new UK headquarters is reported to provide extra manufacturing capacity and contain a state-of-the art research and development function located only a short distance from the current site on Manor Park.
This coupled with the addition of a brand new and dedicated engineering operation located in a facility directly opposite the new HQ, signifies a clear intention for growth.
Commenting on this new enterprisem John Millington said; ”Sandon Global Engineering Limited provides total quality assurance to our customers and strategic partners; ultimately delivering a complete Anilox solution.”
“In short our sleeves and rolls are manufactured from start to finish to our stringent quality standards. This delivers on our core brand values of Expertise, Precision, Continuous Improvement and Service. The new facility will also provide us with the ideal platform to fast track our exciting R&D projects.”
