Manufacturing team award
30 January 2018
Deb Group has won a prestigious team award at the Manufacturing Champions Awards, after being recognised for its commitment to waste reduction.
The Manufacturing Management’s annual Manufacturing Champions Awards celebrate companies that have a track record of innovation and have demonstrated outstanding performance in adding value to customers.
The Deb European Operations Team, located in Denby, Derbyshire, fought off stiff competition to win the award after showcasing its dedication to tackling a major waste challenge. Their success resulted in combined cost savings of £750,000, increased plant capacity by 2 per cent, and added an extra 1.5 per cent in sales revenue.
Andy Hume, European manufacturing manager of Deb Group, said: “The major success of the project was largely down to engaging the workforce and the collaborative work of the manufacturing teams, who have taken on the responsibility, embraced the challenge, and positively adapted to the new changes. Without their enthusiasm and hard work, we would have never achieved this fantastic result.”
