Three Awards for Driessen Thailand

Over 2006 and 2007, Driessen in Thailand received as much as three prestigious awards! It is a clear recognition of the success of Driessen Thailand over the years in which period it became one of the largest Dutch multinational companies in the country.

NTCC Business Excellence Award

The first award was received for Business Excellence. The joint foreign chambers of commerce of the Benelux countries in Thailand established this award in 1998 to honour Benelux companies in Thailand for the way in which they excel in business and for their contribution to the Thai society.

Kees de Ruiter receives Business Excellence Award for Driessen ThailandThe Ambassador of The Netherlands, HE Pieter Marres presented the prestigious award to Kees de Ruiter MD of Driessen in Thailand, in a gala dinner event in Bangkok. Driessen received the award for its achievements in 2005. During this year the facilities in Thailand were restructured, production processes were adjusted, and decision making responsibilities were brought to lower levels in the organisation. This resulted in greater commitments on performance. To reach these goals, an in-company Education and Training Centre was established. The continuous training of staff and workers is made a key element for success in Driessenís manufacturing facilities. The measures taken have lead to an improved cost effectiveness in the operations.

Employer of the Year 2006

In September, Driessen was invited by the Ministry of Justice to come to a ceremony in Bangkok to receive two awards. The awards were for being Employer of the Year 2006 with a positive Attitude towards Rehabilitating Drug Users. The other award was for having an effective learning centre that incorporates instruction for employees on how to prevent using drugs.

Kees de Ruiter receives Employer of the Year 2006 Award for Driessen ThailandKhun Pagorn, Production Manager of the Sheet Metal factory has been instructing new employees how to prevent on using drugs, for over four years. He does this in close cooperation with the Labour Welfare Office of Lamphun. This organisation coordinates in the Lamphun region the special programme called “White Factory”. Last year Driessen started a policy to dismiss dealers of drugs immediately when caught. Users of drugs will have a second change. They have to follow again the newcomer introduction instructions and to undergo numerous tests at the hospital during a period of time. If they pass the test they can stay with Driessen. The whole workforce, moreover, is tested on unexpected moments throughout the year. This new policy has been very benificial for both the workers and the company.
