We are so proud to announce that we have been shortlisted by Insider Media for this prestigous manufacturing award.

Businesses from across the region have been recognised by a panel of independent judges having demonstrated success in innovation, product development and growth in either domestic or overseas markets.

Sponsored by Grant Thornton UK LLP, Howes Percival and HSBC UK, the Made in the Central & East England Awards is the region’s premier event for the manufacturing sector.

They form part of a suite of manufacturing awards that Insider hosts around the UK each year, all culminating in the national final, the Made in the UK Awards.

All the winners from the Made in the Central & East England Awards will automatically go through to the national final which this year will take place in June.

This is the fifth year that Insider has run the awards and the ceremony will be taking place at the Jury’s Inn Hotel in Milton Keynes on Thursday 7 February.

Philip Cunliffe, Insider’s regional business editor, chaired the judging panel. He said: “The manufacturing and engineering base in Central & East region is the driving force of the region’s economy. So we’re delighted to once again shine a light on the achievements some of these high quality businesses and the talented staff that work for them.

“We’re really excited to be hosting these awards again and look forward to another night of well-deserved celebration.”
