The Manufacturing Excellence Award (MX Award) is a benchmarking competition that honors best practices from manufacturing companies.
"Identify strengths - set standards" is the motto of the Manufacturing Excellence (MX) network.
After completing the first application phase for the MX Award 2018 and evaluating the Self Assessment Audit, the shortlist was published in early May 2018. A total of eleven companies have qualified for the second application phase.
Leesys is among the finalists.
"The MX Award is one of the most professional competitions for companies in Germany, and with the expert organization, the high-level auditors and members of the jury, the aspirations of the companies that are competing are very high. We enjoyed the self-assessment with great enthusiasm and excitement. Now we look forward to the Business Review in June 2018 and of course to the decision of the MX Jury", explains Dr. Arnd Karden, CEO Leesys.
The idea of the MX Award, which supports exemplary company success methods, has its origins in the UK. The concept of the MX Award was transferred to Germany with the establishment of the Association for Production and Logistics Management (VPLM) e.V. in 2004 and the establishment of an identical research project at the Department of Logistics of the Technical University of Berlin.
Since 2015, the Manufacturing Excellence Award has been under the patronage of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
