A Blyth company will battle it out with industry giants for a prestigious accolade.
Tharsus Group has been shortlisted for The Manufacturer magazine’s Innovation and Design award and will battle it out with well-known companies including McLaren Automotive.
The collaborative manufacturing specialist is now undergoing a rigorous process including a visit by judges.
Tharsus Group has been chosen for its early adoption of the Original Equipment Design and Manufacture (OEDM) outsourcing service model.
The winner will be announced at The Manufacturer MX Awards ceremony and Gala Dinner on November 2.
Brian Palmer, chief executive, said: “It’s an honour to be recognised for our commitment to innovative manufacturing, especially by such a well-respected organisation as The Manufacturer.”
“The OEDM model, which takes an initial concept through to production, requires a great deal of technical knowledge and our in-house team lead the way in electromechanical engineering.
“We look forward to welcoming the judges from The Manufacturer and showcasing our processes.”
Nick Hussey, CEO of the Hennik Group, organisers of TMMX Awards, said: “All the shortlisted companies should be extremely proud that they have been selected against so much strong competition.
“The entry and shortlisting process is far more rigorous and evidence-based than any other industry awards programme and making it to the finals is a huge achievement.”
