MPM has been crowned a regional manufacturing champion at this year’s prestigious EEF Future Manufacturing Awards.
MPM has walked away with the Developing People Award, sponsored by Jonathan Lee Recruitment. This award recognises the manufacturer that has done the most to build skills, harness talent and develop its employees.
We also won the Business Growth Award, which is given in recognition of a company delivering dynamic business growth through a consistent growth strategy.
We were up against stiff competition from a range of innovative businesses - small and large - from across the region. It was selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts, and academics.
With the regional title now secured,we will now go on to compete for the national title at an awards gala dinner in London in January next year.
Ben Wilson, Managing Director at MPM, says:
“This award is testament to our hard working and dedicated team, and we are delighted to have won. It puts us on the map as a modern and innovative company and goes some way to demonstrate the valuable contribution made by local manufacturers, like ourselves, to our region. We can’t wait to share this news with all our staff, customers and suppliers.
It’s fantastic to get this far and now we’re all looking forward to the national finals in January to see how we measure up against the rest of the UK.”
Jonathan Lee, Chairman at Jonathan Lee Recruitment, says:
“People are critical to the success of any business. As the UK manufacturing sector continues to make a global impact, there has never been a more important time to develop and foster the skills of employees to remain at the forefront of innovation, particularly as the industry faces a skills shortage. Doing so is essential for any company wishing to stay competitive. MPM fully deserves this award for the fantastic work that they do in nurturing their employee’s skills. We wish them the best of luck in the national finals.”
