Taking home the title of Insider’s Made in Central and East of England Manufacturing Company of the Year (above £25m) award!


Last night we had the pleasure of attending Insider’s ‘Made in Central and East of England Awards 2020’ for manufacturing companies in our region. After being shortlisted for the ‘Manufacturer of the Year (above £25m)’ award in January, some of our team attended the event in Milton Keynes amongst a number of other reputable manufacturing businesses.

The awards were drawing to a close and – as our category was the last to be announced –  we were ecstatic to find out that we were in fact the winners of the award!

As can be seen by the photo below, the award was presented by Sponsors of the evening and category HSBC – represented by Andrew Garvey, deputy head of corporate banking. Our Head of Truss Production Mat Harbour collected the award, who has been with the business for 15 years and has been key to our development and quality maintenance. We are incredibly thankful for the initial nomination by HSBC and the expert panel of judges that confirmed us as the winners.

We were shortlisted amongst a group of innovative companies across various sectors, consisting of Muntons, Beardow Adams and Essentra Packaging. Being placed alongside these successful companies is a testament to the dedication of our team through the extensive growth we have experienced in recent years.

It was great to celebrate the achievements and innovations of manufacturing businesses across our region in a variety of sectors. The winners from last night’s event and each regional awards then go forward to the national event, recognising manufacturing companies from all corners of the UK. We are thus looking forward to attending the National Insider’s ‘Made in the UK Awards’ this June in Liverpool and continue to maintain the values which made us worthy of this award!
