Manufacturing Innovation Award for Kentec
Life safety control systems manufacturer Kentec Electronics has won the Manufacturing Innovation Award at the 2018 Insider Made in the South East Awards for its contribution to the manufacturing industry in the South East of England.
The Made in the South East Awards are designed to recognise and reward manufacturing companies based in the South East region that have demonstrated success in innovation, product development and growth in either domestic or overseas markets.
Philip Cunliffe, Insider Regional Business Editor, says Kentec’s award is the result of its ongoing investment into its manufacturing capabilities: “Kentec Electronics’ on-going investment in production processes and factory expansion has not only allowed the company to grow and expand its reputation for quality life safety systems, but is also a fantastic story for the broader UK manufacturing industry.”
Along with the company’s continued growth, this award recognises the business’ success in innovation, product development and growth in the South East region.
Derrick Hall, Director of Sales at Kentec, who collected the award, says the win is an excellent achievement for the company: “We are extremely proud of our manufacturing capabilities and indeed the fact that everything sold is made in the UK from our Dartford facilities. It gives us ultimate control over quality and design, and it is fantastic to receive an award in recognition of these capabilities – and in particular our new feature rich Taktis panel.”
The award win means Kentec will be automatically shortlisted for Insider’s national awards final, Made in the UK 2019.
Kentec is an end-to-end manufacturer, employing approximately 230 members of staff in its production facility, head office and research and development.
