After another successful trading year we have topped last year’s two nominations, in the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Business Awards 2017, with being nominated as finalists in the Small Business of the Year, Manufacturer of the Year and our very own Amanda Strong is a finalist in the Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
We are delighted we have managed to impress the judges in all of these categories and see it as a massive testament to all of the hard work the Mercia staff put in every day to make sure our clients’ products are produced and delivered to their expectations.
Our Managing Director, Amanda Strong said “To be a finalist in all these 3 categories is incredible and a huge achievement for everyone at Mercia. Our staff have so much commitment and dedication to make sure that our clients have the best experience possible working with us and I really believe that has reflected in this achievement”. Amanda also added “These awards are amazing, with some of the best businesses in Derbyshire being selected as finalists, it is a great honour and tremendous accomplishment to be amongst them and one we are immensely proud of.”
On the Manufacturer of the Year category, our Finishing Manager Daniel Kinnerley said “Everyone in production feels great to have been noticed for this award because it shows that the hard work and determination from everyone is really paying off”. Daniel also added, “Manufacturing is a huge part of the Midlands’ success story and we are delighted to be part of that story”.
The results of the business awards will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony on the 7th of September, at Pride Park Stadium. We will make sure to keep you posted on how we get on.
Well done Team Mercia, fingers crossed!
