The search to find Britain’s best manufacturers is on. EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, has launched the 2018 annual Future Manufacturing Awards, designed to find Britain’s unsung manufacturing heroes and most outstanding apprentices. This year they are extra special as the awards celebrate their 10th anniversary.

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

The apprentice categories, for those working in engineering or business support roles, are designed to celebrate the fantastic work being done by apprentices across the UK. Companies are being urged to put forward 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.  Entries will be judged regionally, with the winners going on to compete for a national award.

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: http://www.eef.org.uk/awards.
