Just how deeply has UK Ltd's manufacturing renaissance taken hold? One look at the businesses taking part in this year's Best Factory Conference suggests that Britain's factories are streaks ahead. Representatives from ICI Paints, Krone (UK), CCL, Caradon Mira, Autoglym, Keltek Electronics, Arjo Wiggins Fine Paper and United Distillers make up the roll call of speakers. They will talk about the processes that made them winners of the 1997 Best Factory Awards.
The conference takes place on 30 September and 1 October at the NEC in Birmingham. Topics include cellularisation, achieving excellence in partnership, factory or workplace reorganisation and the application of technology to traditional processes.
