Commenting on the awards Jon Excell, editor and publisher of The Engineer said. “This year’s competition has shone a spotlight on the incredible contribution made by manufacturers large and small and showcased both the innovative measures that engineers across industry are taking to grow their businesses in challenging times, as well as the role played by engineers in addressing some of society’s most pressing challenges. Our shortlist - which was bristling with inspiring tales of best practice and innovation - provided myself and the rest of the judging panel with plenty of reasons to feel very positive about the future of UK industry.”
