Awards to celebrate engineering

MANUFACTURERS in Scarborough are being invited to enter this year’s national awards by the Engineering Employers Federation.

Businesses of all sizes are invited to share their success stories in a bid to demonstrate how manufacturing and engineering companies are at the forefront of re-building the UK economy.

In partnership with headline sponsor Infor, a leading business software company. The regional and national awards recognise outstanding business performance in innovation, enterprise and environmental responsibility.

They also celebrate the achievements of apprentices, saluting those young people who are the rising stars of UK manufacturing.

Terry Scuoler, chief executive of the Engineering Employers Federation, said: “Now in its third year, the EEF Awards prove that even in the toughest economic conditions, UK manufacturers are breaking down barriers, reinventing the rules and reaching out for new opportunities.

“This year’s awards will underline the dynamic manufacturing industry we can all be proud of.”

Chair of judges professor Steve Evans, from Cranfield University, said the awards showcase the dynamic ideas put in place to overcome hard times. The Awards are free to enter and are open to all UK manufacturers. For more information visit
