Leading manufacturers and talented apprentices from across the UK were recognised as national manufacturing champions at the EEF Future Manufacturing Awards held in London last week.

PAXMAN was the biggest winner on the night receiving the Manufacturer of the Year award – a title awarded to the most outstanding company amongst all the category winners, alongside winning the Business Growth category and coming runner up for the Innovation award.

Judges were impressed with the different business models that Paxman employed for different international markets, according to local contexts and within highly regulated environments.

The judging panel said “This innovation displayed huge impact in terms of social and health benefits.  It was multi-dimensional from finance, product development and service delivery.”

Winners were selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics and was up against tough competition from a range of dynamic businesses, small and large, from across the UK.

Richard Paxman, says: “To be recognised as a leading manufacturer across the UK is fantastic. I’m thrilled with all of the awards as everyone within the business has contributed. To be able to provide our product across the globe really pleases me as I know what we do makes a huge difference to people in particularly tough times. We’re all delighted to have won.”
