Are you Yorkshire and Humber’s best manufacturer?

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 13 Apr 2018

EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, has launched the 10th annual Future Manufacturing Awards, designed to find our local unsung manufacturing heroes and outstanding apprentices. Yorkshire and Humber manufacturers and apprentices are being urged to put themselves forward for prestigious regional business awards that could ultimately lead to them being named Britain’s best manufacturer.

There are six business awards to go for, recognising health and safety, leadership, innovation, business growth and strategy, sustainability and developing future talent.

The two apprentice categories, for those in both engineering and business support roles, are designed to celebrate the fantastic work that apprentices do across the UK. Companies are being urged to enter their best and brightest apprentices to help promote the wealth of opportunities available to young people within UK manufacturing.

The awards are free, easy to enter and give apprentices, manufacturers and supply chain businesses of all sizes from across the UK the chance to shine. 

Stephen Phipson CBE, CEO of EEF, says: “A strong manufacturing sector is the backbone of any healthy economy, spreading wealth and secure employment to every region of Britain. This takes dedication, dynamism and hard work from companies, coupled with a supply of determined and talented apprentices.

“Despite the fantastic success of so many manufacturers and apprentices, our sector remains full of unsung heroes who do not get the recognition they rightly deserve. These awards are about celebrating success and giving manufacturers who contribute so much their moment in the spotlight.”

The closing date for entries is 29th June, 2018. To enter or to find out more please visit:
