Last week, Steve Milton, Head of Ricardo’s engine operations, visited Titan to present their Supplier of the Year Award. The award recognises outstanding overall performance in Titan’s supply of products and services to Ricardo over the past 12 months. With the emphasis on delivery and product quality, Titan achieved 100 percent on time and in full delivery throughout 2017.
Presented at Titan’s engineering facility in Cambridgeshire, George Lendrum, Managing Director accepted the award to applause from the team at Titan. “I am delighted to have been able to accept this accolade on behalf of all at Titan”, commented Lendrum. “The performance improvements have only been possible with the full commitment of our team. Our relationship with Ricardo has matured over the years, to the point that real trust and a genuine partnership has evolved.”
“A robust and high-quality supply chain is essential for a successful performance product manufacturing operation,” commented Ricardo head of engine operations Steve Milton. “For this reason, we spend significant time and effort in developing our multi-national supply chain, to ensure that Ricardo can remain the supplier of choice for performance and premium vehicle engines. Amongst some of the world’s best suppliers, we were very pleased to be able to recognize the contribution of Titan with our 2017 Supplier of the Year award. We look forward to working with Titan and our entire supply chain to set new benchmarks in performance, quality and delivery in the year ahead.”
This award comes hot on the heels of Titan winning the Business of the Year Award at the Motorsport Industry Association Business Excellence Awards, which were held last month. Without doubt, this has been the most exciting and rewarding starts to any year, and is as a result of huge changes and growth at Titan.
Titan specialises in the design, development and manufacture of complex engineered components and solutions for the automotive and motorsport industries. With over 60% of Titan’s production being supplied into automotive applications, receiving this award from Ricardo for work on Project Victoria is a real endorsement of Titan’s capabilities as a supplier.
