Once again it's time for the Best Factory Awards, the annual showcase of all that is great and good in British manufacturing. Thanks to the worldwide economic slowdown, this year has been as tough as the previous one for manufacturers, and staying competitive remains a constant battle, despite the lowest domestic interest rates for a generation. But excellence thrives in adversity, and hard times make for some lean and fit businesses, as our dedicated team of judges can testify. They have criss-crossed the country in search of outstanding manufacturing performance, at sites where constant improvement is the watchword and even the best is only just good enough. The result of their toil? Our shortlist of 10 companies, each one of which can stand against the best in the world in terms of manufacturing excellence.

The awards are sponsored by PICME, AEEU, Fit for the Future, English Partnerships and Oliver Wight Europe and organised in partnership with the DTI, IEE, EEF and Cranfield School of Management. They will be presented at The Savoy in London on 25 October. For tickets or further information contact Nici Brooks on 020 8267 4161. The results will be published in next month's issue of MT.
