Leicester, 5th September 2016 – MWS Weighing Solutions, the manufacturer of industrial weighing equipment, has won the prestigious East Midlands Chamber (EMC) Manufacturer of the Year award, sponsored by Samworth Brothers.
The EMC Business Awards recognises companies across the county that have pioneered new concepts and innovation, excelled in commercial enterprise or distinguished themselves with their attitude to workforce development. Sponsored by Samworth Brothers, the Leicestershire based FMCG manufacturer, the Manufacturer of the Year award was designed to recognise local manufacturers with a proven track record for innovation, efficiency, sustainability and profitability. The finalists must also demonstrate the success of the products they manufacture, along with the strength of their presence in the UK and overseas.
MWS industrial scales are manufactured in the UK, with many Leicestershire-based companies supplying materials, components and services. For unique, bespoke jobs, MWS consult with clients to design, manufacture, test, calibrate and install the scales based on specifications and requirements outlined by the client, making it a collaborative process. All of this is done in-house at MWS’s new facilities in Birstall, to ensure specific requirements are met and each scale is manufactured to the highest standard. MWS also manufacture a range of off-the-shelf scales that are highly accurate, robust and meet the needs of various weighing challenges, but at an affordable price.
MWS provides a full service from beginning to end, which includes delivery, installation and on-going calibration and service.
Andrew Clarke, Commercial Director, MWS Ltd, comments, “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised by such a great organisation as the East Midlands Chamber. We take great pride in manufacturing the highest quality scales right here in the UK – and to be awarded by our peers in the East Midlands is a real honour. We have seen an increasing appetite for UK manufactured products both domestically and internationally, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with our clients to meet their weighing needs.”
Richard Clarke, Managing Director, MWS Ltd, adds, “MWS has come a long way in the 20+ years of operation from a small, two person company to where we are today, and that is truly testament to our great engineers and employees who are the best in the industry. We are unwavering in our dedication to bringing innovative, high quality products to market and are truly honoured to have received this award, especially against such stiff competition.”
