For the second consecutive year, Winder Power is pleased to announce that it is the winner of Manufacturer of the Year at the Made in Yorkshire Awards 2017.
Winder Power won in the Under £25 Million category and was up against other leading manufacturers such as Bemrose Booth Paragon, Fibre Exclusion Technology, P.A.W. Structures, The Shire Bed Company and Victory Leisure Homes.
The awards took place on 20th April at the Royal Armouries Hall, Leeds, and many attended the prestigious event.
It was said at the awards that Winder Power thoroughly deserved to win because in the last year it has grown turnover by 30 per cent and increased its workforce by 15 per cent following that expansion. Almost all of the profits have been reinvested in the business too, to increase manufacturing capacity by up to 40 per cent.
Winder Power looks forward to another year of expanding and improving the business, as Chief Executive Laurence MacKenzie comments; “As ever it is down to the hard work of our entire team that we have been successful in winning this award, and to win it for a second year running is especially pleasing because it shows that no-one is resting on their laurels.
Our aim is to continue to develop our role as a true community company, to support our fellow businesses and actively engage in the regional business arena.”
Winder Power has also recently been awarded a RoSPA Gold Award for its commitment to Health and Safety, with over 1630 days worked without a reportable incident.
