… and you don’t just need to take our word for it! We are celebrating success with a prestigious award win – the Leicester Mercury Business Awards, Excellence in Manufacture and a Highly Commended in the Made in the Midlands Awards in their Manufacturing Apprentice / Training Scheme category!

Round our way the Leicester Mercury Business Awards are fiercely contended and we were thrilled to be named as finalists in the Excellence in Manufacture category. Recently we attended the rather glittering awards ceremony and were announced as the winner with judges commenting on the win saying we were, “the clear winner for the award”.

Speaking about the award win Jason, our Chairman said, “We are beyond thrilled to win this award. Yes, we are over the moon! It recognises our skills and ability as a manufacturer in a part of the country that is abundant with great manufacturers.”

Nick, our MD added, “This win recognises the hard work and talent we have at JC Metalworks. The award is for the wider team here and I am thrilled for them. There was a lot of excitement from us on the night and I think, truth be told, we are all still buzzing!

“To follow that win up with a Highly Commended at the Made in the Midlands Awards for our Apprenticeship Scheme is beyond thrilling. The competition was fierce but the judges saw something special in our application and we are genuinely delighted. Our people are at the heart of all we do here at JC Metalworks and ensuring we are investing in the next generation of engineers is a key part of how we are going to take JC forwards.”

The award win and Highly Commended notation follow on from confirmation that Jason has been selected as a finalist in the Institute of Director (IoD) East Midlands Director of the Year awards for the second year in a row. The winners will be announced on the 23rd June. Can we make it three in a row? No pressure Jason!
