Printing ink giant Sun Chemical of Parsippany, New Jersey, has received a Jury Commendation for the UK Excellence Award for “Managing with Agility” from the British Quality Foundation.
The company received the award at the recent British Quality Foundation Awards dinner in London. The company had been shortlisted to receive a UK Excellence Award or an Excellence in Collaboration Award.
The UK Excellence Award came after Sun Chemical received a five-star EFQM (European Foundation for Quality Management) rating.
According to the company, the UK Excellence Award and Jury Commendation involves a robust assessment undertaken by an experienced team of trained assessors using the EFQM Excellence Model. The assessment judges various aspects of a business, ranging from strategy and leadership to processes and business results. Sun Chemical first undertook the assessment in 2014, receiving a four star rating. The company was then reassessed in November 2018, resulting in a five star rating and it being shortlisted for the UK Excellence Award.
Sun Chemical received the Jury Commendation for excelling in “Managing with Agility.” for which it was specifically recognized for entering new markets.
“Utilizing our business improvement skills in partnership with our customers has added tremendous value to customer relationships,” says Greg Hayes, group managing director for Northern Europe for Sun Chemical. “The recognition of this by the British Quality Foundation in being shortlisted through such a rigorous process with other great companies is a great honor and a tremendous credit to the teams involved.”
