Domino’s big victory at Manufacturer MX Awards 2018

Domino Printing Sciences - Operational Excellence winner at Manufacturer MX Awards


Domino Printing Sciences, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of coding, marking and printing technologies, has received the ‘Supply Chain Excellence’ accolade at the prestigious annual Manufacturer MX Awards. Celebrating the best of British manufacturing, the event was held in Liverpool on 16 November, and was organized by The Manufacturer magazine in partnership with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers.

The Manufacturer MX Awards are universally recognized as the gold standard for bench-marking performance across a range of manufacturing categories, among companies of all sizes. The awards are presented following a detailed review of each entrant’s citation by groups of judges, who visit each factory in turn to inspect processes, and interview management and staff.

Domino was been shortlisted and is proud of the fact that after winning the supply chain excellence award last year, it has won the Operational Excellence category against some very tough competition. Domino was elected winner against brands like Jaguar Land rover, BMW Mini, Leyland Trucks and Philips Avent. In addition, Domino won in this category against the overall ‘factory of the year’ winner Accolade Wines. The winner selection process is rigorous and judged by highly experienced people from the industry and from organizations like IMechE and the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Nick Peters, editorial director of The Manufacturer said, “There are dozens of awards programs in the manufacturing sector, but The Manufacturer MX Awards stands head and shoulders above them all. And that is why great companies like McLaren Automotive are so eager to take part, because they know they are being tested in a way no other program can offer. It’s demanding, but companies embrace it because, perhaps for the first time, they are being bench-marked against the best.

Carl Haycock, UK printer operations director said, “We are delighted to receive this particular award against some very tough competition. It recognizes the investment that we have made in our supply chain, our people and our manufacturing processes to ensure we deliver the best possible experience for our customers. Our ability to deliver high quality, highly customized products to worldwide customers in short lead times is something we are rightly proud of.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
