Leicestershire-based MWS Weighing Solutions, the manufacturer of industrial weighing equipment, has won the prestigious East Midlands Chamber “Manufacturer of the Year” award sponsored by Samworth Brothers.
The EMC Business Awards recognises companies across the county that have pioneered new concepts and innovation, excelled in commercial enterprise or distinguished themselves with their attitude to workforce development.
The Manufacturer of the Year award is designed to recognise local manufacturers with a proven track record for innovation, efficiency, sustainability and profitability. The finalists must also demonstrate the success of the products they manufacture, along with the strength of their presence in the UK and overseas.
MWS industrial scales are manufactured in the UK, with many Leicestershire companies supplying materials, components and services. For bespoke jobs, MWS consults with clients to design, manufacture, test, calibrate and install the scales based on specifications and requirements outlined by the client, making it a collaborative process. All of this is done in-house at MWS’s new facilities in Birstall.
Andrew Clarke, commercial director at MWS, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised by such a great organisation as the East Midlands Chamber. We take great pride in manufacturing the highest quality scales right here in the UK – and to be awarded by our peers in the East Midlands is a real honour. We have seen an increasing appetite for UK manufactured products both domestically and internationally, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with our clients to meet their weighing needs”.
Managing director Richard Clarke added: “MWS has come a long way in the 20+ years of operation from a small, two person company to where we are today, and that is truly testament to our great engineers and employees who are the best in the industry. We are unwavering in our dedication to bringing innovative, high quality products to market and are truly honoured to have received this award, especially against such stiff competition”.
