Kimberly-Clark Crystal Eagle Award for Northfleet

The Crystal Eagle is awarded to an operation that achieves one year without any reportable H&S incidents. Bearing in mind this includes hauliers in/out of the operation and the mill which are dangerous environments, the success of winning this prestigious award is commendable. This is the first time the award has ever been presented to the Northfleet site.

“Safety is a core value for KC, and our commitment to safety is a commitment to do what is right – by everyone, on every site, every day. Myself and the UK Supply Chain team are totally committed to ensuring this is as true of 3PL SC site operations as in KC manufacturing operations.

Thank you Unipart and Logistex for partnering with us to realise this commitment by ensuring our operations identify potential opportunities to operate more efficiently and effectively, but without compromising – and indeed actively supporting – the safe working environment on site at Northfleet.

However, special thanks and kudos to Ryan, Neil (W), Neil(M), Hugh and the whole Northfleet Unipart and Logistex team who live and breathe strong safety values every minute of every day in every area of operation. Profound appreciation for your efforts, which mean our Northfleet colleagues and hauliers go home injury-free every day.”

Sally Sturdy, Supply Chain Leader UK & Ireland.
