WHS Plastics Win Top JLR Award

This month, WHS Plastics UK were honoured to be presented with a Global Supplier of Excellence award by JLR. It is the  highest accolade WHS have ever received . The award was presented to WHS Chairmen Clinton Smith along with Group Managing Director Colin Sarson and Manufacturing Director Steve Morton who were also in attendance.  The award presented to WHS along with 14 more award winning companies; five gold, five silver and five bronze awards were presented by British comedian and actress, Jennifer Saunders  along with Directors and senior managers from JLR and the award was presented again in front of 300 people at the JLR Top 150 global suppliers day at Gaydon.

WHS were the winner of the inaugural Gold Customer First Recognition award, a new award for JLR which pays tribute to the company that best demonstrates the Customer First Principles that they believe are crucial to their successful future. They seek to ensure that their customers – both internal and external – always come first.   JLR see those principles are: personalised, transparent, easy to do business with, dependable, and make them feel special.

In October 2017, one of JLR  suppliers had their manufacturing site completely destroyed by fire. No-one was injured but the potential impact on Jaguar and Land Rover production was huge across all three UK manufacturing sites and to the Graz operation in Austria. WHS were asked to help and we were happy to do so.

We would not have been selected for this award, without the full support of  all departments  within  JLR. Part of the JLR award process means all functions in JLR must confirm that they are receiving excellent service from a nominated  supplier. This means all teams at WHS have played a part in winning this award. Well done and thank you for all the hard work across the company who have created the circumstances for this award from JLR.
