Mecalac Construction Equipment UK has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Coventry Business Excellence Awards – Excellence in Industry and Excellence in Innovation. Organised in partnership with Metro Newspaper, the awards celebrate success and achievement from the region’s most innovative companies.
Recognised for its disruptive approach to product development, significant investment in technology and continued adaptation to the changing marketplace, the judges were impressed with Mecalac’s ambitious corporate strategy and recent model launches. With 6% of revenues re-invested into innovation every year, the company’s focus on R&D (research and development) helps it to remain at the forefront of the global compact equipment marketplace.
Paul Macpherson, UK Sales and Marketing Director at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, comments: “Being shortlisted in two categories at the Coventry Business Excellence Awards is testament to the team’s continued hard work and dedication. With more than 60 years’ manufacturing experience, we’re hugely proud of our Coventry roots and consider it a real honour to be recognised by our peers.”
Over the past 12 months, Mecalac has continued to refine, redesign and expand its product offer. Alongside unveiling Connect Energy Link technology, the company has launched three new cabbed site dumper models and a new marque of its MCR crawler-skid excavator.
Macpherson continued: “We believe that innovation plays a driving role in our commercial success and, as such, keep it a fundamental part of our operations. In the compact construction equipment market, we are a relatively small business compared to our competitors, yet our commitment to being innovative is what puts us on the map and sets us aside.”
The winners of each category will be announced at an awards ceremony at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on Thursday 19th September.
