Roadlink shortlisted for major local award
Roadlink International has made the final of the “manufacturing champion” award at the prestigious Express and Star Business Awards 2017. Held at Wolverhampton Racecourse on Thursday 8 June, Roadlink International will go up against two other successful manufacturers in the hope of securing the top spot after undergoing a judging process whereby the organisers will visit the Roadlink facilities.
Based in the West Midlands, the Express & Star is recognised as the biggest-selling regional evening newspaper in Britain and the ceremony brings together 36 shortlisted companies throughout every sector of commerce and industry to celebrate the strength and breadth of the local economy.
Since investing £700k in its new commercial vehicle (CV) caliper remanufacturing facility in Willenhall, West Midlands just last year, Roadlink has experienced growth.
The larger facility, advanced equipment and increase in staff has enabled the local CV supplier to remanufacture calipers at a faster rate without compromising quality.
Keith Sedgley, Roadlink joint managing director, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for such a renowned award. In a region that is renowned for its manufacturing talent it is an achievement in itself to be picked among the final three.
“We have had a busy and successful year enhancing the quality of product and service that we provide to customers by carrying out a series of investments. As a direct result of our expansion, we have considerably increased our staff count and have been able to provide an array of job opportunities to members of the local community. This has enabled us to continue to meet high demand while maintaining the level of quality offered.”
Roadlink has also recently updated its distribution and remanufacturing processes to be audited and approved to the new ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 international standards.
This, along with its ‘Investor in People’ status, demonstrates its commitment to delivering a first-class range and service, from production right through to sales.
As one of the leading suppliers of parts for commercial vehicles, Roadlink currently offers a complete range of new and remanufactured braking solutions, including calipers and brake shoes as well as an extensive range of pads, discs and drums.
