Daniamant wins recognition at regional business award
Daniamant, a manufacturer supplying a range of solutions for the marine sector, has been highly commended at this year’s prestigious EEF Future Manufacturing Awards.
Daniamant, was runner up for the Innovation Award and highly commended for the Business Growth Award. These awards celebrate manufacturing innovation whether demonstrated through product development or operating practices that have driven greater productivity, efficiency or business growth.
Daniamant was up against stiff competition from a range of innovative businesses – small and large – from across the region. It was selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics. Judges commented on a particularly good recent project that saw a brand-new product development venture exploring completely new markets. The ODEO Distress Flare offered safety equipment users a choice between existing technology and an alternative LED technology. The product was also influencing legislation around the world and buyer behavior in a very competitive market.
Kevin Rough, CEO Daniamant says: “Both of these awards show our dedication to continual innovation in marine safety to ensure Daniamant has a bright future!”
Jim Davison, Membership Director for the South at EEF says: “This achievement is testament to the hard working and dedicated team at Daniamant, and I’m delighted they have been recognized in this way. It demonstrates the valuable contribution made by local manufacturers, to our region and I’m sure they will be sharing this news with staff, customers and suppliers.
Dick Elsy, Chief Executive at HVM Catapult, says: “Innovation, the drive to deliver ever better goods or services and the focus on continuous improvements in process and practice, is at the heart of every great company. It is key to the efficiency, outstanding productivity and world-beating competitiveness that creates robust, sustainable growth. Innovation creates opportunity, but it is challenging. Those who master it deserve our recognition and praise.
