William Hughes has been shortlisted in The Manufacturer MX Awards 2015, sponsored by NatWest and will now go head-to-head with manufacturers across the country for the title of Leadership and Strategy award.

This is the first year that The Manufacturer of the Year Awards, run by The Manufacturer, and the Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Awards, run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, have joined forces to form The Manufacturer MX (TMMX) Awards.

The national awards, celebrating the best in the manufacturing sector across the UK, will be held in Birmingham in November.

Emma Burgon, said:

“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Leadership and Strategy award…. It is immensely satisfying when such an august organisation recognises the effort, both physical and financial, that we have put into developing our business over the past few years.”

Nick Hussey, CEO of Hennik Group, publishers of The Manufacturer magazine and organisers of the awards said:

“It is an incredible achievement to have been shortlisted – these are the largest and most rigorously judged awards in the sector so any company being shortlisted will have provided evidence to the judges of a superior level of understanding of what makes modern UK manufacturing so vibrant and competitive.

Manufacturing is very much alive and well and the shortlisted companies are exemplars of what advanced manufacturing looks like in terms of sustainability, innovation and world class competitiveness”.

Richard Hill, Head of Manufacturing at NatWest, said:
