And the winner is… Waterloo

Waterloo Air Products Plc has won the impressive Manufacturer of the Year award at the Kent Invicta Chamber Business Awards 2018. The team from Waterloo picked up their prize at the glitzy award ceremony on 22 March at Canterbury Cathedral Lodge.
“We couldn’t be happier,” says John Tiernan, Operations Director at Waterloo, the award-winning manufacturers of air terminal devices. “Winning an award is always good, but to win one for manufacturing is the best it can be.
“Most of what’s manufactured in our factory is made to measure, and we do a lot of special orders for very prestigious buildings. Often changes are made at the last minute, and we have to be able to react quickly.
“We believe the win was because of our investment in the factory including a new paint shop, alongside our ‘customer first’ strategy,” adds John. “This was put in place several years ago and is at the core of our current success. We know that contractors and building engineers are under more pressure to deliver projects on time. As a component manufacturer, we understand the importance of our position in the supply chain. This win is testament to the whole team at Waterloo.”
