Aerospace quality management experts G&P have been awarded a Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice.



Securing a bronze energy management award in the automotive category, G&P received their honour at the Houses of Parliament on 6th November. The award was presented by Councillor Michael Cooke, former head of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.

It was the first time that G&P entered its flagship Quality Excellence Model into the Green Apple Environment Awards, which are designed to recognise, reward and promote environmental best practice around the world.

G&P’s award winning Quality Excellence Model has helped the company’s automotive and aerospace manufacturing customers reduce their levels of waste by more than £2.5 billion in 2016 alone.

Accepting the award, Glyn Love of G&P, said: “While the importance and success of G&P’s waste reduction efforts have been widely recognised by our customers, it’s also an amazing achievement to win this highly prestigious Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice.”
“It shows just how important our Quality Excellence Model is proving in reducing levels of waste in high value manufacturing industries all over the world.”

“Indeed, in 2016 G&P’s teams inspected more than 116 million parts and identified more than 25 million that did not meet the relevant quality standards and specifications.”

At the heart of G&P’s Quality Excellence Model is an in house sophisticated software system called QTrak, which allows real-time analysis and identification of quality issues.

Dino Kyriacou, chairman of G&P said: “Environmental considerations are at the heart of G&P’s business. Waste reduction and environmental performance are likely to be ongoing concerns for our customers, so G&P will continue to invest and develop its systems and processes so that we can continue to deliver industry leading services and performance.”

G&P’s Quality Excellence Model has also been awarded the UK’s highest business accolade, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2016.
