Published on 26 August 2016

Asian Manufacturing Awards 2016, 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 this evening at the Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel.

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. 

Raymond Wong, Contineo Media CEO, said: “Manufacturers face a multitude of challenges today, including constant pressure to increase productivity and quality while keeping cost down. They also have to face new governance and regulations 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. 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.”
