MP invite for local businesses

SCARBOROUGH MP Robert Goodwill MP calling on local businesses to get in involved in Manufacturing Excellence 2012.

The UK-wide awards programme, from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, identifies and celebrates outstanding UK manufacturing businesses, and can also help companies improve.

Mr Goodwill said: “I’m calling for businesses to apply and take advantage of the programme. Entry is free and there is up to £20,000 free consultancy advice up for grabs as well as the chance to win at the prestigious Manufacturing Excellence Awards in November.

“Manufacturing is the economic backbone to the UK and by entering companies can ensure Scarborough and Whitby are at the heart of the country’s manufacturing resurgence.”

Manufacturing Excellence, which is run in partnership with The ERA Foundation, Lombard and WMG and sponsored by Arup, is the most successful and long established manufacturing awards programme in the UK.

It works with all manufacturing businesses to help improve their processes and showcase their successes and innovations.

Applications must be submitted by June 1.
