As one of the UK’s leading, employee owned, medical device manufacturers, we are delighted to be celebrating our win of the prestigious Make UK Midlands & East of England Manufacturing Matters Award for 2023.
The award has been developed to recognise a company that demonstrates exceptional adaptability and resilience to impact their business and improve lives and society.
This year MAKE UK were specifically focused on manufacturing companies who demonstrated a positive societal impact, who have supported or enhanced their local community, network, or environment.
This is a special and very important achievement for Pennine, with our 60 years history, and our clearly defined values and purpose statement.
Our CEO, Graeme Cameron, and Head of Operations Richard Cohen attended the event and received the award on behalf of Pennine.
“Manufacturing is at the heart of Pennine and the heart of Derby. Manufacturing is the way that the UK will grow and develop as a country, and with global disruption it has never had more of a focus. I’ve never been prouder of the team here at Pennine”.
Our submission was built around our work with our Employee Council, ‘We Matter’, as well as our annual Spring Clean, Greenbelt, and Charity efforts. Make UK were also impressed with our internal Mental Health Programme, which has led to the creation of Mental Health First Aiders across the business.
Dan Wilson, Head of Marketing & Communication, states:
“As Corporate Social Responsibility becomes more and more important in communities across the UK, it’s brilliant that Pennine has been recognised for our efforts, especially by such a respected organisation as MAKE UK. We look forward to competing in the national final, against other regional winners, which takes place in January 2024″.
Pennine will now be entered into the national award, and will find out if we have won at an awards night in January.
