H&T Presspart Blackburn, which also includes our H&T Industrial Business Unit, is extremely pleased to be announced as winners in the ‘Manufacturing Matters’ category at this year’s MAKE UK Awards for the North West region. This is the second year in a row the site has won this award for our region.

The ‘Manufacturing Matters’ category has been developed to recognise a company and/or collaboration that demonstrates exceptional adaptability and resilience to impact their business and improve lives and society..

The award is a great achievement for the site and is a credit to the employees behind the work recognised for this award and is another example of our 1TEAM philosophy.

Make UK represents over 20,000 UK manufacturing and engineering companies and champions the sector, supporting businesses around the country whilst building a platform for the evolution of UK manufacturing. The organisation has been established for over 100 years as the EEF (Engineering Employers Federation) but was re-branded to Make UK in 2019.

Now that we have been recognised in these regional awards, we qualify for the national awards which take place in January 2022 in London. We would like to congratulate everyone on site and those involved in the application process. This is a fantastic accolade for H&T Presspart and H&T Industrial during another year filled with many challenges.
