Worcester, UK, September 14, 2018 — Southco, leading global designer and manufacturer of access hardware products, hosted their first ‘Get to know Southco’ event at their European headquarters in Worcester, UK to launch a new global brand refresh initiative.

The event was designed to provide editors and local community leaders with the opportunity to interact with Southco’s senior and product management teams to learn about how the company creates compelling experiences with their customers.  Southco continues to build on the strong foundation of their brand, making ongoing investments in businesses future growth and development in the UK and  around the world to reinforce their position as a global leader in engineered access hardware solutions.
The main focus of the day was to learn more about the Southco  brand and people, focusing on how the organisation creates first impressions that last, with each individual employee playing a key role in supporting a customer centric culture. Delegates were able to experience Southco’s operational and engineering capabilities when touring the Worcester manufacturing facility and  saw how technology is utilized to transform a facility into a “smart” factory by connecting software with processes to increase efficiency whilst reducing defects, downtime and waste.
