Castle Brom hosted our 2019 TIC conference over the weekend.
The event, now in its third year at the plant saw 34 teams from across the site present their TIC projects to our panel of judges who had the difficult task of selecting just nine of them to go through to the UK regional convention at the National Conference Centre in Solihull.
The quality on display at the conference was second to none and everyone who contributed this year by entering a team should be immensely proud of their efforts.
After a hard fought contest we are pleased to announce the teams representing Castle Bromwich in the next round are:
Up to Scratch – Trim and Final – Gavin Barnes, Martin Davies, Martin Hopkins, Vinny Rumble and Julie Holland-Davies

“All the teams here today have been excellent and there was a real sense of pride and show of enthusiasm at the event.” commented Billy Cox, Vice-Chairperson of TIC at Castle Bromwich. “This year’s convention was the biggest and best here at CB so far and shows amazing commitment to future of the plant. Our 34 TIC themes have found potential savings for the business of approximately 1.4 million. When you add that figure to the immeasurably valuable personal growth and development of everyone who has participated in a circle this year you really get an idea of the real benefit that TIC brings.
“Our biggest assets are our people and by the fact they have positively engaged with the TIC Programme during this year, they have really demonstrated a desire to make a positive difference to both themselves and the business.”
Congratulations again to all the teams who took part in the event and a massive well done to everybody who worked hard to make it such a success, all the best for the next stage for those going through to the next stage and we hope to see you make it through to the finals in Slovakia later in the year.
