MGS Technical Plastics has been recognised for its corporate social responsibility efforts with an award win at the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA) Annual Dinner. Held on 7 November at the Mere Golf Resort and Spa, Knutsford, this important award win wasn't the only recognition the Made in Britain member received.
Finalists for the Manufacturing Excellence Award, MGS Technical Plastics was also highly commended in the People and Skills Excellence Award for its exceptional culture and commitment to staff training, personal and professional development at all levels of the business.
Referring to the impressive CSR strategy that won the award, the judging panel commented on the company "demonstrating an ambition for CSR that is far beyond the expectation of small enterprises".
Nathan Sturgess, procurement officer, said: "We're all really happy to have won this award. CSR is integral to the soul of MGS, so to be recognised for this - in a field including global companies that are seen as leading lights - means the world to us."
This follows MGS also winning the Manufacturing Excellence Award at the 2018 Annual Dinner.
John Sturgess, managing director of MGS Technical Plastics, said: "It was a very proud moment for all at MGS when we won the award and an excellent night for the team to celebrate their achievements.
The NAA Annual Awards Night and Networking Dinner was hosted by Steve Dickson and the guest speaker was the Prof Jon King Hon DSc, CEng, FIMechE of WMG Centre High-Value Manufacturing Catapult. It was a night dedicated to networking and celebrating the achievements of automotive companies in the past year.
While at the annual dinner, MGS Technical Plastics premiered its newly developed company video to all attendees which was fully released to the public on 8 November. This is alongside a full brand development of a brochure, photography, and website.
Katherine Lucarz, managing director at The Marketing Knot, said: "The brand evolution at MGS needed to accurately reflect the company it is now and the company it continues to grow to become."
