The manufacturing sector has evolved over time, bringing both opportunities and challenges in a sector where business leaders cannot rely on old responses in the new manufacturing environment.
This was showcased at the recently held Manufacturers Association of Nigeria’s (MAN) 50th Annual General Meeting and Awards where Chi Limited, was announced as the first place winner for adopting best workplace production practices and processes amongst competing multinational companies in Nigeria.
The award was a deserved reward for the company’s continued passion for excellence and commitment to sustainable development exemplified by the company’s significant investment in manufacturing and other related infrastructure projects.
Chi Limited’s investment in modern production infrastructure has been a critical enabler for competitiveness, research & development and productivity growth.
Speaking on the award recently in Lagos, Chi Limited Managing Director, Mr Deepanjan Roy, said; “the MAN Award is a confirmation of the steps taken by Chi Limited to ensure that the company’s work place is in line with global standards for manufacturing.”
“We are happy that our efforts so far have paid off with significant output and recognition. The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria’s Award inspires us to continually demonstrate excellence in manufacturing and constantly strive for improvement, best practices, creativity and innovation,” he stated.
An ISO 22000 certified company, Chi Limited’s world -class and state of the art manufacturing facility deploys the most advanced processing and packaging technology available anywhere in the world. Its strict adherence to world class manufacturing standards and consistent efforts to ensure the most efficient process possible has been key to the company’s success and recognition.
A MAN multi-panel selection committee comprising of regulatory bodies, both at state and federal levels, noted that Chi Limited took the first-place prize because of its world class manufacturing facilities and processes.
These facilities and processes have helped Chi Limited create a more environmental-friendly workplace by preventing cross contamination, reduction in waste trips, sorting and recycling.
The availability of a gas plant is also strategic for the prevention of pollutant and usage of the exhaust to power the boiler, while the company’s greener environment policy and fire equipment are modern and up to date.
