Hörmann UK has been named 'Loading Bay Equipment Manufacturer 2008' by the Institute of Transport Management (ITM). This is the second year running that the German brand has been accredited this prestigious award.
In the logistics industry today there are few qualities which rate more highly than cost competitiveness, speed and reliability, and absolutely key to the whole warehousing and logistics chain is the efficiency of the on-load and off-load mechanisms.
In the most successful operations, these are squared against component compatibility, delivery requirements and end user demands; only if these crucial elements are taken into consideration can the entire delivery process run smoothly from start to finish.
Hörmann has grown from a small family business established in the early twentieth century to an international corporation with a presence in more than 30 countries, a 5,500-strong workforce, and an annual turnover of €1 billion.
In the modern era, Hörmann Group is Europe's top supplier of doors, operators, frames, gates and all essential components of the warehousing and logistics business. The company has gained this pre-eminent position through its devotion to core values such as innovation, quality and localisation.
In announcing the award to Hörmann, Patrick Sheedy, Media and PR Director at the ITM, said: “Without a doubt, Hörmann stands head-and-shoulders above the other providers of loading bay equipment currently in the market. The cost-effective manner in which its high quality products and services support the supply chain makes the company a truly deserving recipient of the coveted 'Loading Bay Equipment Manufacturer 2008' Award.
“In standing by the founder's principles of value, excellence and attention to individual customer needs, Hörmann consistently provides a top-class service to the industry. I would like to express my delight at Hörmann's return to our Awards table and congratulate everyone at the company on this achievement, wishing them all the best for the years ahead. I feel sure we will see a continuation of the company's staunch and steady progress, to the benefit of the entire logistics sector.”
