“Factory of the Year” – Beiersdorf Manufacturing Tres Cantos wins award for Excellent Transformation Production Site

The Spanish production center Beiersdorf Manufacturing Tres Cantos wins the award for “Excellent Transformation Production Site” in the “Factory of the Year” competition.

The award, organized and presented by AT Kearney, is one of the most prestigious industrial competitions in Europe. Among the more than 80 participating factories, five winners were selected in specific categories in an extensive benchmarking process.

According to the jury, Beiersdorf Manufacturing Tres Cantos received the award for being an “Excellent Transformation Production Site” due to the outstanding implementation of a comprehensive plant expansion, the high level of employee engagement and motivation, and the future orientation in the areas of digitalization and sustainability.

The jury particularly highlighted the site’s performance during the COVID pandemic: a wide range of measures to ensure the safety of the workforce, the maintenance of delivery capability and the flexible production to disinfectants – which were donated to hospitals and public institutions.

Sebastian Marchante, PC Director of Beiersdorf Manufacturing Tres Cantos: “We are very pleased to receive this prestigious award, which recognizes the commitment of the entire team and shows that we are on the right track with our investment in an expanded, digital and sustainable plant. In doing so, it is very important for us to take all our employees with us – because that is the prerequisite for a successful future.”

The winners of the competition will be presented in a detailed report in the business magazine “Produktion” in early 2022. The award ceremony will take place in March 2022 on the occasion of the annual “Factory of the Year” conference.
