At a prestigious gala dinner hosted in London by industry analyst Frost & Sullivan, Robert Conway, Executive Chairman of the Blakell Europlacer Group, and Group Director Victor Lorenzo accepted the award for 2019 Company of the Year in the Global SMT Pick & Place category on behalf of Europlacer.
It is an unprecedented fifth consecutive Frost & Sullivan ‘Best Practice’ award for Europlacer. Frost & Sullivan describes Europlacer as “a company that consistently offers unique value propositions to its customers.”
Significantly, the F&S Company of the Year award recognises market leadership through a process that includes critical assessments and input from industry peers and customers, as well as Frost & Sullivan’s own skilled observers and analysts. Among the metrics that led F&S to hand the award to Europlacer was feedback from Europlacer equipment owners who reported zero equipment downtime.
