Welcome to The Manufacturer of the Year Awards 2014.

This year’s awards was launched at the House of Commons on March 3, 2014.

More than 200 senior business leaders turned out for the launch, sponsored by Margot James MP and attended by Business Minister Michael Fallon.

Speaking at the launch earlier this month, Mike Patton, Managing Director of last year’s overall prize winner, GE Aviation Wales, said: “I encourage all of you to apply for The Manufacturer of the Year Awards here in 2014, as it is a great honour. It’s important that the skills and quality in UK manufacturing gets the recognition it deserves. So I really challenge you all to look at it very hard and put the application in.”

Business and Energy Minister, Michael Fallon, also present at the launch, said “These awards celebrate the ambition, creativity and innovation that’s evident across the breadth of British manufacturing.” 

If you have an inspiring story to tell, have made significant improvements to your working practices or think your team deserves nationwide recognition, this is the year we want to hear from you!
