PP Control & Automation named Manufacturer of the Year

Significant growth over the last decade and a £3m sales boost during the previous 12 months have steered PP Control & Automation to one of the main prizes at the Made in the Midlands Awards held by Insider.

We were delighted to be named as the Manufacturer of the Year (under £25m) by a high-profile judging panel, beating off strong competition from excellent businesses, including FFP Packaging Solutions, Purity Brewing Company, Somers Forge and Three Point Design.

The accolade recognised our commitment to investment, with more than £500,000 spent on strengthening the senior management team, integration of automated testing technology and the purchase of bespoke Artos fully automated cable preparation machinery.

This, along with the creation of a dedicated ESD area for electronics and sensitive assembly, has contributed to us achieving 99.92% delivered quality and over 98% on-time delivery – two staggering results when you consider the complexity of managing a supply chain that contains 13,000 part numbers and 500 different suppliers.

Tony Hague, CEO of PP Control & Automation, commented: “The Made in the Midlands Award comes just a few months after we provided the final electrical harnesses for use in the VentilatorChallengeUK consortium, a herculean effort by all of our staff.

“It reinforces our company culture of continuous improvement, personal development and working together to ensure we are the best in what we do. We already work with over 25 of the world’s largest machinery builders and this prestigious title will help us when tendering for new contracts.”

PP Control & Automation, which plays a key role in the supply of fresh milk, keeping mobile phones dry, bagging crisps and helping your favourite F1 team perform, is now setting its sights on adding to its honours when it competes in the Business Desk West Midlands Masters Awards tomorrow.
