A Barnstaple manufacturer is being hailed among the top performers in the UK after being named a runner-up at the first-ever national EEF Future Manufacturing awards, held in London.

SF Ltd, which produces flues and chimneys, was runner up in the Innovative Working Practices Award - one of four categories designed to recognise excellence and reward world-class performance.

The company received the accolade as a result of introducing a business improvement programme that transformed manufacturing performance - leading to a 24 per cent increase in sales and a significant improvement in profitability.

Terry Slater, South West Region Director for EEF, said: "These awards recognise the value that innovative manufacturing businesses contribute to our region's economy and prove that we have a manufacturing industry here in the South West that we can rightly be proud of.
