EEF Future Business Awards 2017

The hunt to find Britain’s best manufacturers is on. EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, has launched the 9th annual Future Manufacturing Awards, designed to find Britain’s unsung manufacturing heroes and most outstanding apprentices.

There are nine award categories that companies can go for. This includes a Developing People Award, sponsored by Jonathan Lee Recruitment, for the company that has done the most to build skills, harness talent and develop its employees. Last year’s winner was Superior Seals, a leading manufacturer of high integrity o-rings and seals, which employs 199 people.

Other awards recognise business growth, export, innovation, leadership, environmental achievement, health and safety and partnerships. Entries will be judged regionally, with the winners going on to compete for a national award. One manufacturer will go on to be crowned EEF’s prestigious ‘Winner of Winners’.

The awards are free, easy to enter and give apprentices, manufacturers and supply chain businesses of all sizes from across the UK the chance to shine.The awards also celebrate the brilliant work being done by manufacturing apprentices across the UK and help to promote the wealth of high quality opportunities available to young people in industry today.

Terry Scuoler, CEO of EEF, says: “A strong manufacturing sector is the cornerstone of the economy, providing much-needed jobs and prosperity in every region of the UK. This takes dedication, dynamism and hard work, especially when it comes to building skills and developing employees, which can be a game-changer for firms.

“Despite these attributes, and many more, our sector is full of unsung heroes who do not get the recognition they deserve. These awards go some way towards addressing this and ensure their success and contribution are celebrated.”

Jonathan Lee, Chairman at Jonathan Lee Recruitment, says: “The EEF Future Manufacturing Awards recognise those organisations that invest in their people for the long term, contributing to continued British manufacturing excellence, and showcasing the hard work, dedication and ambition in every part of this vibrant sector.”

In addition to sponsoring the Developing People Category, Jonathan Lee Recruitment are also the EEF recruitment Advantages Partner. They have assisted many EEF members to access a broad base of technical, engineering and manufacturing talent, sourcing individuals from across the globe for permanent, contract and interim positions.

Both organisations alignment in aims, purpose and approach has strengthened the collaboration. Jonathan Lee Recruitment and the EEF strive to provide manufacturing peers the best-placed platform to drive UK manufacturing growth.
