Automation parts supplier EU Automation has launched its ‘Factory Hero’ campaign to encourage recognition of unsung heroes within the manufacturing sector. The campaign seeks to recognize the vital role played by technicians and engineers responsible for building and maintaining a robust supply chain and keeping the manufacturing cogs turning.

The Factory Hero digital campaign features an unassuming worker named Jeff who is able to source a vital part quickly via EU Automation and thus earns the gratitude of his colleagues.

Nominate a colleague as a Factory Hero. EU Automation will arrange for those nominated to receive a Factory Hero certificate with a personalized message from the person who suggested them.
