We’re celebrating at Tharsus this month after our unique business model won industry recognition at a prestigious national awards ceremony.
The Manufacturer MX (manufacturing excellence) awards, delivered in partnership with The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), recognise businesses that are truly outstanding in their fields. At this year’s ceremony Tharsus was named winner in the Most Progressive SME category.
The accolade recognises Tharsus’ pioneering business model of partnership working with customers in development of highly agile and innovative advanced machine and robotic solutions (AMRs) to solve customers’ problems and develop their businesses. The judging panel felt this set an important example to businesses globally of how growth can be significantly accelerated through effective collaboration.
We were also shortlisted in both the Innovation and Design and Leadership and Strategy categories further reflecting the success of our unique business model and our approach to developing AMRs for companies new to product ownership.
Tharsus CEO Brian Palmer said:
“It’s hugely rewarding to see our unique business model recognised in this way and exciting to see how we are quickly becoming the go-to collaborator for partners seeking AMR solutions to transform their businesses.
“While our experience has broadened considerably with the projects we have co delivered, we’ve never lost of sight of how fast the industry is changing. Agility and co-operation are the two key ingredients in our business model and we thank the judging panel for their endorsement.”
Matt Rooney, Engineering Policy Adviser at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, said:
“The Institution of Mechanical Engineers are delighted to maintain our partnership with the TMMX Awards, which recognise excellence across UK manufacturing.
He added: “Manufacturing is one of the major drivers of our economy and in order to remain so, the sector will need to adapt to a fast-changing technological landscape. Congratulations to the winners. Everyone who took part is a great credit to the manufacturing industry and the UK engineering profession.”
