The Best Company To Work For In The Plastics Industry 2016

20 June 2016

Summit Systems has been crowned one of ‘The Best Companies to Work for in the Plastic Industry'. The award was presented at last week’s PDM exhibition in Telford during an exclusive prize giving lunch.

Summit Systems Managing Director, Mike Jordan says:

“This is a fantastic achievement for the Summit Systems team, who make our business such a great place to work. I am fortunate to be surrounded by such a positive culture which encourages performance and ensures our people enjoy coming to work.”

The best company to work for awards are organised by PRW and Best Companies Group. The programme is designed to recognise outstanding places of employment in UK Plastics. Entry comprises a survey completed by Summit Systems (worth 25% of marks) and one completed by a random sample of company employees (75% of marks), which are used to produce the industry ranking.

Mike Jordan continues:

"Most of the ranking is based on what our staff think about us which makes it so much more meaningful. We have a great team with many staff having been with us for a decade or more. It's a real honour to work with such a dedicated group of people"

In a week of highs, Mike Jordan was also personally recognised for his contribution to UK plastics by making the 'PRW Most Influential People in Plastics' list. The 70 strong list, unveiled at PDM, consists of individuals whom PRW readers and a panel of experts believe have had the most impact on the sector in the past 12 months.

Mike Jordan opened Summit Systems for business in 1989 to help manufacturers increase production and efficiency by providing plastics ancillary equipment, installations and aftersales services. Today it is sole distributor for many products in the UK providing clients with solutions that best matches their needs rather than being tied in to a particular brand or system.

Summit Systems was the first plastic ancillary supplier to provide 24/7 support, boasts the highest number of regionally based engineers and has the highest volume of stock available on a next day delivery. Most equipment is provided under warranty.
