    PPS sponsors the Manufacturing Award

    As a local business, we are proud to be sponsoring the Manufacturing Award.

    Recognising the achievements of manufacturing businesses who have “delivered consistent growth and who demonstrate innovative products and processes and a fully engaged workforce”, the award is for companies with fewer than 249 employees.

    Manufacturers are a major contributor to the local economy and the award will celebrate companies who create high-quality and innovative products, have seen sustainable growth and can show good support for their employees, for example with training and staff development. It will also recognise those businesses that demonstrate a commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and make a contribution to the local community.

    Whether you’re nominating your own company or another local business, the application is quick and easy – just follow the link and help promote Calderdale as a place to do business!
