They were crowned after beating off stiff competition from companies across the UK to win a panel of judges over with their commitment to improving their health and safety culture. 

Now, with the awards kicking-off again for the 6th year running, UTC Aerospace Systems is urging other outstanding manufacturers and supply chain businesses to step forward.

Richard Eastwood, Facilities Manager from UTC Aerospace Systems, says: “We were delighted to have been recognised as winners of these awards last year - it has been a real boost to our business and to staff and it was great to get industry recognition for our work. I encourage all manufacturers from the aerospace industry to enter the awards this year and wish them the best of luck.”

Richard Storey, Executive Director of RKH Insurance Services, says: “ Manufacturers have a great story to tell. Our reigning champion – UTC Aerospace Systems - has had a great year and the icing on the cake would be to see them pass the crown on to another business in the aerospace sector.”

There are seven different categories to enter, including: success in strategic growth, smart products, health and safety, skills and training, operational excellence, climate and environment, and exporting. There are also separate awards for the best manufacturing apprentices. Entries should be made before the 3rd October, 2014 at : www.eef / .
