BRITISH ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2014 – WINNERS REVALED

The winners of the 2014 British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEAs) were revealed at a lunch event held at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London on 9 October (see the full list of winners here).

This year the Grand Prix prize was presented to leading engineering consultancy and driveline solutions provider, Romax Technology. A global business with headquarters in the UK, Romax was also named as the Consultancy of the Year.

It offers consulting, software and design solutions, as well as support for bearings and gearboxes, to customers in markets ranging from automotive to wind energy. However, it excels mainly in the automotive market, where it works with 14 of the 15 top car makers.

Commenting on the company's outstanding success, Chairman of the Judges and previous BEEAs Grand Prix winner, Andrew Burrows, said: "The Judges felt that any organisation that manages to do business with more than one manufacturer in a competitive market must have something special going for it. But when you find a consultancy working for more than 100 automotive companies – and 14 of the top 15 car makers – then that company is truly an example of British Engineering Excellence."

Ed Tranter, Executive Director of Awards Organiser Findlay Media, added: "Romax Technology was one of a number of exceptional entries received this year. Through every category, the judges were deeply impressed by the quality of engineering put forward and the talent behind it. My personal congratulations go to all those entrants that were shortlisted and of course to the winners."
