Reward your star site performers and help us showcase the buzz of being in UK manufacturing to the nation by supporting Works Management’s Manufacturing Champions Awards.

Manufacturing Champions is a unique Awards scheme exclusively celebrating the all-important people who supercharge factory success.

These are the only industry awards to shine a light on the men and women whose passion and professionalism helps British factories take on the world. Nine category prizes including Unsung Hero Rising Star and Safe Workplace Champion are up for grabs.

Winners must demonstrate outstanding performance, innovation, proven results and a talent for adding value to their products.

From the manager whose deft leadership skills have inspired employees to go the extra mile to the shift team whose eureka moment has led to a monumental safety improvement.

This year's Manufacturing Champions Awards will take place at the Midland Hotel, Manchester on 8 December.

Deadline for entries has been extended until 7 October
