"extremely proud"

Kentec wins Manufacturing Innovation Award at South East Awards 2018

Life safety control systems manufacturer Kentec has won the Manufacturing Innovation Award at Insider Media’s Made in the South East Awards 2018.

The awards recognise excellence in innovation, product development and growth, both domestically and in overseas markets, among manufacturing firms based in the southeast.

“Kentec Electronics’ ongoing investment in production processes and factory expansion has not only allowed the company to grow and expand its reputation for quality life safety systems, but is also a fantastic story for the broader UK manufacturing industry,” said Philip Cunliffe, Insider regional business editor.

Derrick Hall, Kentec’s director of sales, collected the award. “We are extremely proud of our manufacturing capabilities and indeed, the fact that everything sold is made in the UK from our Dartford facilities,” he said.

“It gives us ultimate control over quality and design, and it is fantastic to receive an award in recognition of these capabilities – and in particular our new feature-rich Taktis panel.”

Kentec, who will now be shortlisted for Insider’s national awards final, employs around 230 members of staff in its production facility, head office and in research and development.
