The Asian Manufacturing Awards 2017, organised by Contineo Media, is here again to recognize and honour companies from the industrial automation sector that provide technology, solutions and value-added services to enable manufacturers to attain world-class performance. The gala dinner and awards ceremony, which started in 2012, was held on the evening of 27 July 2017 at the Mandarin Orchard Hotel Singapore.

Against the prevailing intense competition in the manufacturing industry, it is imperative that manufacturers should not only reach but also sustain operational excellence. Added to this, Asia is also technologically diverse and in different stages of economic progression. Catering to this wide spectrum, it is companies like the ones represented and recognized here tonight that are playing an increasing role in this transformation of the region’s manufacturing abilities in the different landscapes.

Manufacturers today face a myriad of challenges, including the constant pressure to increase productivity and quality while keeping cost down. They also have to face new regulation and compliance measures, environmental concerns, coping with the skills gap, while contemplating with demanding customer service standards. These issues are driving the development of holistic automation technology and solutions that improved the products and services to the manufacturing industry.

Raymond Wong, CEO of Contineo Media, said: “Throughout the years as we go from strength to strength together with our industrial partners and supporters, weathering the economic ups and downs, it is a testament to our resilience and our desire to achieve excellence in everything we do. We are here tonight to honour companies which deliver cutting-edge industrial automation technology solutions and services that have a tremendous impact on the industry.”
