Land Rover Wins Top Manufacturing Award

Solihull, West Midlands, 27 June 2002 – Land Rover's manufacturing plant at Solihull has won this year's Institution of Mechanical Engineers - Manufacturing Excellence Award 2002.

Land Rover was one of six major UK companies short-listed from nearly 300 entrants for the major Manufacturing Excellence Award given by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Land Rover was also a finalist in all six of the awards categories, which included, Best Practice in IT, People Effectiveness, Customer Focus, and Product & Process Innovation. The company secured the award for Customer Focus, runner-up for Resource Efficiency and was declared the overall winner of the Manufacturing Excellence Award at a ceremony held at The Intercontinental Hotel, in London on 26 June 2002.

Marin Burela, Director, Manufacturing, Land Rover said: "It is a great honour for me to accept this most prestigious award on behalf of Land Rover. Most important, it is a true testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment demonstrated by all our people. Winning this award gives recognition to their willingness to embrace change, providing a positive platform for business growth into the future."

The awards organised jointly between the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Warwick Manufacturing Group, based at Warwick University, are acknowledged as the premier awards for excellence and best practice in manufacturing. The 2002 award recognises the latest innovations and developments of companies in their key business processes.

Land Rover's requirement to gain entry into the final was a three-step process, including the completion of an in-depth written submission giving details of the business, an on-site business review by a panel of independent assessors and finally a presentation to top academics, leaders of industry and business journalists.
