IPC recognised by EFQM
Northern Ireland tool manufacturer and injection moulding company, IPC Mouldings (IPC), has been awarded the EFQM Recognised for Excellence 4 Star award at the EFQM Ireland Excellence Awards (Clandeboye Lodge Hotel, Bangor on 8th March).
The prestigious awards ceremony, organised by the Centre for Competitiveness (CforC), is judged on the internationally renowned EFQM Excellence model, recognising organisations that demonstrate excellence in their overall performance and quality.
The EFQM Ireland Excellence Awards accreditation falls into three categories, with IPC achieving 4 Star ‘Recognised for Excellence’ acknowledgment. The company was also recently recognised as achieving SC21 Silver in B/E Aerospace’s Supply Chain Programme and has also achieved AS9100 accreditation – underlining IPC’s commitment to quality.
CforC Chief Executive, Bob Barbour, said: “This year’s award recipients represent a range of industries and sectors, but they all have a commitment to ensure excellence is an integral part of what they do, so I warmly congratulate them on their achievements.
“There are many advantages for organisations in taking part in the Ireland Excellence Awards process, and by passionately pursuing quality excellence they become leaner, more profitable, more sustainable and therefore more competitive.”
Joanne Liddle, managing director at IPC said: “Last year we were delighted to have achieved EFQM 3 star Recognition for Excellence, and to have built on that and accomplish 4 star Recognition just a year after is testament to IPC’s hard working, diligent staff. This comes at a great time for the company as we will be exhibiting in Hamburg next month, alonside some of the best aerospace companies in the world.”
IPC will be exhibiting at the Aircraft Interiors Expo, Hamburg – the leading global event for the aircraft interiors industry as one of the companies representing Northern Ireland with Invest NI.
