Yunex Traffic | Yunex Traffic factory shortlisted for four major industry awards
Yunex Traffic’s Poole-based global manufacturing facility has been recognised by two industry award bodies that celebrate and champion manufacturing excellence in the UK.
The Manufacturer MX (TMMX) Awards and Make UK Manufacturing Awards have each shortlisted Yunex Traffic in two categories, with the winners due to be announced at separate events in November.
In the prestigious TMMX Awards, the company has been shortlisted in the ‘Leadership and Strategy’ and ‘Supply Chain Excellence’ categories, with Make UK judges also recognising the company’s achievements in their ‘Developing Future Talent’ and ‘Manufacturing Matters’ categories.
Simon Martin, Head of Global Manufacturing at Yunex Traffic, said: “We are delighted that the judges of these high-profile awards have not only recognised the way in which we operate our global manufacturing facility, but also the work we have done to nurture and develop our teams and the way we work with our supply chain partners.
“Like many manufacturing businesses, we faced some real challenges from the Coronavirus pandemic and issues with global supply chains, but working as a united team we have continued to deliver for our customers, ensuring our solutions continue to transform cities all over the world, making roads safer and urban areas more sustainable for everyone.”
Speaking about the shortlisted companies for TMMX Awards, Managing Director of The Manufacturer, Grace Gilling said: “With UK manufacturers facing unprecedented pressures from rising energy costs, a looming talent and recruitment crisis, and continued supply chain issues, it is testament to their resilience that so many companies have committed to participating in The Manufacturer MX Awards. This shows a deep commitment to recognise the successes of their teams, and to showcase their achievements. Now is the time to shout about the amazing variety of UK manufacturing businesses.”
