Posted on 6 Jun 2023 by The Manufacturer

RS, an omni-channel provider of product and service solutions including maintenance solutions and safety solutions, has demonstrated its support for manufacturing excellence by becoming the headline sponsor for The Manufacturer MX Awards (TMMX), established awards run in partnership with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), which have a combined heritage spanning half a century.

A celebration and benchmark of manufacturing excellence, TMMX Awards covers a wide range of categories, from innovation and sustainability, through to skills, leadership and staff engagement, enabling UK businesses of all sizes and from varying sectors to participate and be recognised.

Emma Botfield, Managing Director of RS UK & Ireland, said: “The manufacturing sector has faced unprecedented turbulence in recent years, which factors including the pandemic, supply chain disruption and Brexit, have all been significant contributors. These challenges have been tackled head-on by many organisations who have shown the agility and resilience not just to survive, but thrive and grow.

“We’re thrilled to be headline sponsor of this prestigious event, helping to champion these organisations who have shown that in the face of adversity, flexibility and a willingness to embrace change is key to successful evolution,” she added.

With members of the judging panel including those from organisations like BMW Mini and Jaguar Land Rover, with significant industry knowledge, entrants making the shortlist can be assured of achievement of excellence.

The awards ceremony takes place on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre, and entry dates for submissions span throughout September, dependent on category.
