NES is delighted to be supporting this year’s Manufacturer MX Awards, the biggest annual celebration in the UK Manufacturing industry’s calendar.

The Awards were formed in 2015 by the merger of two of the industry’s existing awards programmes: The Manufacturer of the Year Awards, run by The Manufacturer and the Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Awards, run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

The awards aim to recognise the outstanding work undertaken by manufacturing organisations in the UK from innovation and sustainability initiatives, through to apprenticeships, leadership and staff engagement, projects.

Mark Ballard, Operations Director, NES Global Talent – UK, explains why NES wanted to get involved:

“In the wake of the Brexit vote analysts were concerned that manufacturing in the UK would be severely affected, but figures show that firms have in fact continued to outperform expectations. With this in mind there could not be a more appropriate time to celebrate and reward excellence in UK Manufacturing and NES are delighted to lend our support” 

The Manufacturer MX Awards are part of The Manufacturer Live series of events, which take place November 1st -3rd. You can view the shortlist and find out more about the awards here.
