Don't miss the deadline for the 2011 EEF Future Manufacturing Awards - it's your chance to set your company apart from your competitors, raise morale and boost your business profile.
Entering the EEF Future Manufacturing Awards can help you stand out, with categories reflecting people and operational management, business acumen, export growth, environmental responsibility and outstanding apprentices.
If you’ve grown your business, used innovation to transform your shop floor, rejuvenated your skills and training, increased your exports, or improved your environmental outlook, then we have a category for you.
Previous winners of the Future Manufacturing Awards have built on their success to boost their business potential. Our Awards culminate in a prestigious national final which last year was hosted at Merchant Taylor's Hall.
So don’t miss out; the deadline for entries is 31 July 2011. The judges are seeking stories of inspiration, passion, ingenuity, and sheer hard work.

Winning can boost morale, build your profile and impress your customers
Chair of Judges Prof. Steve Evans, from Cranfield University, said the EEF Future Manufacturing Awards showcase the dynamic ideas put in place to overcome hard times and help grow our economy.
“Winners from the past two years of the competition say the awards boost company morale, build business profile and impress customers,” he said.
“It's not often you get the chance to showcase your company and your team. Entering the Future Manufacturing Awards is your chance to shout about your achievements.”
The awards will be presented at events sponsored by Santander Corporate Banking in five UK regions and Wales this September.
