Classic Industries Europe Named Finalist for Prestigious Industry Awards

Latrobe, PA Nov 1, 2011 — As the plastics industry’s equivalent of the Oscars, the Plastics Industry Awards have come to be known as the forum for recognizing and rewarding excellence in this increasingly competitive market. Many of the United Kingdom’s leading plastic companies and designers are vying for these highly coveted awards. To be considered, suppliers submit a written entry about their work relative to the awards categories. The entries are judged by a panel of carefully selected industry experts.
This year, Classic Industries Europe is nominated for “Best Training and Development Programme,” “Best Environmental or Energy Efficiency Programme” and “Processor of the Year” awards, which are based on the following criteria:
● “Best Training and Development Programme” is open to companies which view the development of skills in their staff as an integral part of their own development. The winner will have demonstrated an investment in training, examples of effectiveness as well as good appraisal and personal development programs.
● “Best Environmental or Energy Efficiency Programme” recognizes companies that have made a significant improvement in their environmental performance and/or energy efficiency. The winner will have developed specific programs that have led to real, measurable benefits (such as scrap reduction, recycling schemes, energy-saving programs, community initiatives or designing for the environment).
● “Processor of the Year” is open to processors (manufacturers of finished components and products using plastics materials) and OEMs processing inhouse that have demonstrated overall excellence. The winner will have shown leading performances across a number of areas, which could include business enterprise and growth, technical innovation, personnel development, manufacturing efficiency, customer relations or environmental consciousness. Essentially, the company will have proven its status as an all-round, world-class processor.
The awards ceremony will be held on October 14 in London. It is expected that over 600 guests will be in attendance.
“We’re extremely proud of the entire team at Classic Industries for these nominations,” said Jay Smith, COO. “Complete customer satisfaction is always our top priority, but it is truly an honor when respected members of the plastics industry recognize our unyielding commitment to excellence.
