Manufacturers from across the Midlands gathered to celebrate the very best of industry achievement from the last 12 months.

The Made in the Midlands awards, now in its sixth year, gave recognition for investment, innovation, growth, export and diversity across the sector. Amongst this year’s winners was Birmingham based Thermotec Plastics.

Thermotec picked up the Manufacturing Achievement award for their innovative approach to new business, resulting in further work from an existing customer and creating a number of new market opportunities.

Thermotec enlisted the help of WMG at the University of Warwick to gather valuable data on the properties of the material themselves to provide customer solutions

Through WMG’s funded support programme for SMEs at the International Institute for Product and Service Innovation, Thermotec were able to access expert mentoring and guidance.

David Rose, managing director of Thermotec Plastics said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been recognised for our achievement at the Made in the Midlands awards.”

Dr Mark Swift, head of SME programmes at WMG said: “the award win is testament to the hard work and innovative approach the team have implemented over recent months.”
