SUIKO in partnership with Vivergo Fuels presented as the winners of the ‘Performance Improvement in the Private Sector Award’

Vivergo Fuels are proud to announce that Suiko (The Operational Excellence Consultancy) in partnership with Vivergo Fuels, have won a coveted award in the recent 2015 MCA Awards.  Pitted against tough competition, the partnership were presented as the winners of the ‘Performance Improvement in the Private Sector Award’ in London on Thursday 23rd April.

In February 2014, newly appointed MD Mark Chesworth, set the business a tough target – To achieve design capacity on the plant by December 31st 2014.  To do this, Vivergo utilised Suiko to provide an in-depth analysis and a solutions based approach.  This involved the deployment of tried and tested methodologies to ensure; profitable growth, cost control and the generation of extra profits.  Using Suiko’s ‘What’ framework, several core deployment areas were identified and development led with the appropriate team leaders.

Suiko’s disciplined approach focused heavily on optimising skills and expertise within the organisation, creating a clear environment for positive growth.  Utilising simple, binary visual measures such as the traffic-light system across the business ensured 100% clarity on actions and outcomes.

Within just 7 months, the Action Teams reported significant results with major improvements gained, and the Company reached full production during December 2014.

Director of Performance Improvement, Billy Storer said

“A huge amount of discipline has been instilled in us. Our new mantra is ‘measure, assess!’ It’s a relentless process. But you have to become obsessive about governance”

Mark Chesworth MD, also said

“Suiko has helped transform our new venture; we can look forward to a thriving, highly-disciplined, commercial enterprise with huge future potential.”

The awards ceremony held in London praised the businesses for an excellent partnership and solid outcomes.  Vivergo Fuels would like to Congratulate Suiko for their award, and thank them for their support and expertise during the project.
