Sigma Electric wins CII - National 5S Excellence Award 2017

Pune, November 1, 2017: Sigma Electric Manufacturing Pvt Ltd, has been adjudged with a Gold rating in the coveted 5S Excellence Award for 2017, conducted by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) at a national level. The award was given away at a ceremony conducted on October 27, 2017.

This year over 50 manufacturing companies from diversified sectors all over the country participated. Organizations that conform to 5S standards are put through stringent tests and audits to assess overall compliance with 5S standards and norms.  5S certification is widely accepted as definitive proof of an organization's efficiency, the quality of workplace and good performance in their field.

The audit report of the company by CII states that Sigma Electric maintains top quality by ensuring active participation of its employees, regular training programs, timely audits, adherence to the ‘5s’ methodology and cleanliness of the premises.

CII works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the growth of the industry in India, partnering industry and government through advisory and consultative processes. The journey began in 1985 with five engineering firms and since then it has been successful throughout in its operations.

Navnath Tarle, Senior Vice President - Operations, Sigma Electric said “We are proud to be recognized by CII with such a prestigious award. This award establishes us as a world-class facility that provides quality and performance at par with global standards. I congratulate the entire workforce and management for their support and commitment towards 5S practices.”

5S awards are given based on an organization's level of compliance with all the guidelines laid out in the 5S system. Initially developed in Japan and adopted by manufacturing industries worldwide, the 5S system was later widely adopted by other industries including the service industry. The 5S system is a method of workplace organization built around five Japanese words 'seiri, seiton, seiso, seiketsu and shitsuke'. In English, these words translate into 'sort out, set in order, shine, standardize and sustain,' - hence the term 5S.
