Cornwall Business Awards

Manufacturer of the Year - sponsored by CORSERV

Manufacturer of the Year - sponsored by CORSERV

The award will be made to the manufacturing business that, in the opinion of the judges, best demonstrates the effective use of methodologies and techniques that focus on improvements in: quality, cost, productivity, physical waste reduction and non-value added activity, customer service and safety.  Judges will also look for evidence of an engaged workforce and development of a lasting culture of continuous improvement.

CORSERV is the new company established by Cornwall Council to provide strategic direction and back office services for its existing Arm’s Length and commercial trading companies:  CORMAC Solutions Ltd, Cornwall Airport, Cornwall Housing, Cornwall Development Company and our Nottinghamshire joint venture company, Via East Midlands Limited.  CORSERV are national leaders in developing the Teckal model for local authority owned companies.  The Teckal model allows companies to trade up to 20% of their turnover externally whilst allowing the local authority to retain control.  We believe it offers a true alternative to full outsourcing or traditional in house delivery.  Carried out correctly with an experienced partner, it offers the best of both worlds – a safe and efficient company that has service and partnership at its core but with a commercial focus.
