“This year more than ever, manufacturers and their employees are going to extraordinary lengths. They are showing resilience, innovation, determination. It is so important that our industry continues to drive forward – adapting to changes – which is why we are proud to be sponsoring the Make UK Regional Awards, as there are still great things happening, with lots to be celebrated, but in a slightly different innovative way this year.”

While these are challenging times, it is important to recognise the success of our awards winners, also acknowledging the contribution that the manufacturing sector makes to the wider economy.”
