All entries were rigorously assessed by an independent judging panel who were looking for employees who had gone the extra mile for manufacturing excellence.

Qualifying individuals and teams across categories will now compete for ultimate glory at the Manufacturing Champions Awards grand final on 8 December.

The Manufacturing Champions Awards aim to shine a light on the men and women whose pride and professionalism helps British factories take on the world.

Entrants must demonstrate outstanding performance, innovation, teamwork and a track record in adding value to customers.

Manufacturing Champions also aims to showcase the exciting and dynamic career opportunities on offer in UK manufacturing and challenge the myth of manufacturing as a career backwater.
