The clock is ticking for businesses looking to enter this year’s Made in Lincolnshire awards – an initiative hosted by Streets Chartered Accountants, NatWest and Business Lincolnshire.
Made in Lincolnshire seeks to celebrate the area’s excellence in manufacturing and its well-earned reputation for innovation within the sector. It also aims to showcase the diversity and creativity of those manufacturing in Lincolnshire.
As James Pinchbeck, Marketing Partner at Streets Chartered Accountants, explains: “The profile of who and what is produced in Lincolnshire just doesn’t seem to receive the recognition it deserves. We are really looking forward to showcasing and celebrating the county’s manufacturing capabilities. We also hope the awards help to promote trade and careers in the sector.”
Garry Wilkinson, Senior Relationship Manager at NatWest, adds: “Having recently co-hosted the Lincolnshire Manufacturing Conference with Lincolnshire County Council, we got a real insight into the contribution that the area’s manufacturing sector makes to the UK economy. NatWest is now delighted to be involved with the forthcoming Made in Lincolnshire Awards that will celebrate the very best in expertise and innovation locally.”
Samantha Harrison, Commissioning Manager for Enterprise at Lincolnshire County Council, added: We know Lincolnshire makes some world-class products, and that’s a message we want to spread far and wide. These awards are a chance to shout about some of the great work taking place right on our doorstep, showcasing the best of the best. Hopefully, this will help raise awareness of all the county has to offer, bringing new opportunities for all involved.
Manufacturing is a hugely important sector for Greater Lincolnshire as it delivers a direct economic value to the Greater Lincolnshire economy of £3.4 billion per year and plays a significant part in the future economic growth of the region.
With entries now open, interested parties have until Friday 14th April 2017.
