The Manufacturer Top 100 project began in 2014, with an aim to dispel the myths surrounding the image of manufacturing and to provide a platform to publicly identify dynamic leaders and innovators in the industry.
The Top 100 comprises of a report and event recognising an elite group of individuals identified as manufacturing champions. The report helps to provoke more widespread competitiveness within the sector, highlighting not only best practice but inspiring others to follow suit.
Shortlisted individuals are nominated by readers of The Manufacturer, the wider industrial community and the public, for their contributions in changing the face of industry; finding new markets; making marked investment in people, processes and customers; and for those making an impact disproportionate to their years.
Out of the winners 20 people are profiled in depth, to underline their outstanding contribution to the sector.
