Physik Instrumente enjoys success at the 2017 Motion Control Industry Awards
Bedford, Bedfordshire, England - May 10th, 2017 Physik Instrumente (PI) is celebrating being shortlisted in the Manufacturer of the Year and Contribution to Skills and Training categories at the 2017 Motion Control Industry Awards, held at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham, on the 9th of May. The awards acknowledge the achievements of motion control companies and individuals, and have become a leading event in the industry.
Building on last year’s success, when the company was named Manufacturer of the Year, PI is delighted to have received further recognition in this category. This success is due to the company’s partnership approach, working closely with its customers to build long-term, trusted relationships, and helping them to realise the true potential of precision motion and control. Additionally, the company’s Lunch & Learn educational sessions, held free of charge at venues around the country, were acknowledged for their contribution to professional training and skills development. Professor Steve Dixon from the Centre for Industrial Ultrasonics, Department of Physics and School of Engineering at the University of Warwick, commenting on a Lunch & Learn session, said: “…the talk was pitched in such a way that it was accessible to everyone… If only all high tech companies were so forward thinking and supportive of the field in which they work.”
