Michelmores’ manufacturing team enjoyed an evening of celebration at the prestigious Made in the South West Awards dinner on the 14 November 2013.
Michelmores sponsored the event, which recognises manufacturing excellence in the South West. Over 200 of the region’s leading manufacturing businesses attended the event at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre.
The Manufacturer of the Year award went to Thatchers, the cider makers based in Sandford. Michelmores sponsored the Aerospace and Defence Award, which was presented to Spirent. The winners of each category will go on to compete in the inaugural Made in the UK Awards 2014, to be held in Liverpool.
Annelie Carver, partner, stated ‘We are passionate about the Manufacturing sector at Michelmores. We believe that this sector will be one of the key sectors in enabling Britain’s economy to grow and provide employment for our future generations. The South West has a number of excellent manufacturing businesses and we were delighted to be able to sponsor the Made in the South West Awards’.
