An engineering firm, Megawatts Nigeria Limited, has been recognised and honoured for its compliance and conformity to the tasking standards demanded by their industry.
Megawatts was awarded best electrical and mechanical engineering company of the year at the just concluded International Standards Excellence Awards organised by World Quality Alliance to mark World Standards Day.
The company is one of Nigeria’s foremost electrical and mechanical engineering companies that have made some marks in their industry and the award, according to the organisers, was in view of this.
“The award was an authoritative acknowledgement of their efforts in the vigorous pursuit of enthroning quality standards as a hallmark of excellent service and product delivery on the African continent and the world market in general,” Desmond Esorougwe, Country Director, World Quality Alliance, said.
The International Standards Excellence Awards, according to the Country Director, recognises distinguished leadership in promoting the significant role of standardisation in eradicating the global barriers to trade.
He explained that the World Standards Day was established to provide vital stimulus for the development of quality and standards as a profession.
“The World Quality Alliance develops industries through professional activities for the research and development of philosophy, theory, methodology and application in the field of quality and standards,” he added.
He explained further that the World Quality Alliance was a leading quality and standard organisation worldwide which strives for one common goal, adding, “it is to improve our customers’ quality and management systems by offering value added assessment services; its client base consists of thousands ranging from small scale enterprises to large blue-chip companies.”
Afam Anyika, the Executive Director, Business Development for Megawatts, thanked the organisers of the event for the honour. “We are deeply honoured to receive this award. This recognition is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and expertise of our entire team; it will only motivate us to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible in our industry,” he assured.
He disclosed that the World Standards Day was established by the International Electro-technical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to honour the collaborative efforts of experts worldwide who voluntarily adhere to and follow the technical agreements established as International Standards.
The awards ceremony had in attendance captains of industry from across different industries ranging from manufacturing, oil and gas, hospitality, real estate, maritime and a host of others from across other African countries.
