During the awards, Sigmatex was also awarded the DHL Logistics Excellence Award for its implementation of a series of process and product changes that optimises package size and footprint. This has led to a reduced number of deliveries, resulting in a significant reduction in emissions.

“It is great to see our commitment to vehicle lightweighting being recognised by industry. This, alongside our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint is a significant focus for the company. It is an honour to receive the Company of the Year Award alongside the Logistics Excellence Award, and I would like to thank my colleagues at Sigmatex for all of their efforts ensuring our success,” commented Paul McMullan, Commercial Director at Sigmatex.
