Manufacturing Award

 Jul 2021

G&B Electronic Designs based in Bordon were runners up in the Health & Safety category at the major National manufacturing awards programme organised by Make UK, the manufacturers’ organisation.

The awards which recognise excellence among manufacturing companies in six categories, as well as five Apprentice categories across the UK, were presented at the annual awards ceremony of Make UK which was held at Canary Wharf in London and sponsored by Japanese IT solutions provider Hulft.

G&B Electronics, a contract electronics manufacturer with over 30 years’ experience in the medical, military, aerospace and automotive sectors were awarded runners up in the Health & Safety category.

Judges stated “G&B demonstrated a clear vision and understanding of the challenges and potential solutions - impressive for an SME – and integrated this into their manufacturing excellence strategy.  Risk assessments led to multiple changes in the organisation to enhance the health and safety of the workplace for the employees.  A structured approach to deploying the strategy delivered root and branch improvements from equipment through to behaviours and engagement.”

Laura McBrown, Managing Director at G&B Electronics said, “For our  organisation to receive National recognition for the work we have done to improve the Health and Safety for our team is absolutely fantastic. Winning the regional award was something we are incredibly proud of and to be in the running against such great competition is an achievement in itself.  Health and Safety isn’t something that you can tick off the list.  It’s something that we continuously work on and is an important part of our culture. To be awarded this amongst our peers is a wonderful achievement.  Claire Almond, Director of Business Development EMEA at Hulft said “Britain is one of the world's biggest manufacturing nations, and it is a great privilege to be working with MAKE UK to help support and champion UK manufacturing. The sector is facing significant change, as a result of what is being referred to as the 4th industrial revolution, and it is important that businesses are given the right opportunities to properly position themselves for the future.”
