Droitwich automotive firm receives award for high standards and visit from the MP and Mayor

CHESS Plastics in Droitwich received a visit from Mid Worcestershire MP Nigel Huddleston and Town Mayor Coun Christine Bowden who wanted an insight into the work the firm did.

Mr Huddleston also presented the company, based on the Berry Hill Industrial Estate, with its IATF 16949 certificate which accredits it for meeting high international standards in the automotive industry.

The International Automotive Task Force (IATF) accolade recognises and rewards best practices in the automotive supply chain, and harmonise standards between countries including the UK, Germany and the United States.

During his visit, Mr Huddleston talked to employees and the Management team about the expansion of the company and more about the materials and machinery used in the injection moulding process.

The MP and the mayor, along with councillors and community leaders, were given a tour of Chess Plastics’ premises.

Mr Huddleston said: “SMEs play a hugely important role in our manufacturing industry, which I have seen for myself today, and it is always great to visit local family-run businesses.

“Chess Plastics have been based Droitwich for almost 30 years and are an important local employer, so I was pleased to have the opportunity to award them their latest certificate that recognises their high manufacturing standard on an international level.”
