Michelmores’ sponsorship of the Made in the South West Awards 2013 has been heralded as a great success by partner Tim Richards who leads the manufacturing sector team at the award-winning law firm.
He said: “Manufacturing is the backbone of the UK economy. It has had some tough years but is now very much part of the recovery of that UK economy yet its profile remains quite low.
“We work with some great businesses in the South West with some great stories to tell and we see this initiative as a way of helping them shout their stories from the rooftops to promote their businesses, the sector and the South West.
“It is clear from the comments from both current and past winners that this sort of recognition has a massive impact on a business in terms of heightened profile amongst customers and clients, the ability to attract and recruit the very best talent in the sector and the boost to morale it gives to the whole staff.
“We are delighted to be sponsoring this very important initiative and look forward to seeing our South West winners feature in the UK Awards dinner in Liverpool next summer which will be part of the International Festival of Business 2014.”
