Sika has been shortlisted for the Quality Team of the Year Award at the International Quality Awards which is due to take place on June 23.
Spanning eight major categories and now in its fifth year, the International Quality Awards are designed to recognise and reward the contribution of quality professionals, teams and entire organisations across the globe. In a competitive field of entries, the shortlist for Quality Team of the Year award saw the Sika team in Leeds recognised for proactive approach to quality and the guidance and support on new systems.
