The Made Smarter Award, established to highlight the transformative impact of digital advancements in manufacturing, has acknowledged Weaver Dane Ltd for its groundbreaking work in leveraging Industry 4.0 technologies.

“We are thrilled to have won this award which celebrates the progress we have made on our digital journey,” said Paul Dodd, Managing Director of Weaver Dane Ltd.

“Digital transformation and investing in new technologies can be challenging, but from the very first meeting, Made Smarter has made it simple. They helped us identify future objectives and create a digital roadmap. The grant funding enabled us to fast track our investment in a 3D furniture design solution by 18 months. This technology has made us more efficient, productive, and no doubt will result in being more profitable. It has allowed us also to venture into new locations, which in return will create new jobs and our existing workforce has definitely been upskilled.”

The Made Smarter Award recognises companies that have demonstrated a commitment to innovation, sustainability, and excellence in manufacturing. Weaver Dane Ltd’s achievements align perfectly with these values, making it a standout choice among numerous applicants.

“I would like to congratulate the winners and nominees who have all embraced digitalisation to become leading examples of UK manufacturing excellence” said Donna Edwards, Director of the Made Smarter Adoption Programme in the Northwest. “Digital transformation is challenging, particularly given the challenges the sector has faced in recent years, so it is right we recognise the forward-thinking nature of these businesses and their employees.”

As Weaver Dane Ltd celebrates this prestigious award, the company remains committed to pioneering new advancements in furniture manufacturing. With plans to further expand its digital capabilities and sustainable practices, Weaver Dane Ltd is poised to continue leading the industry into a smarter, greener future.
