Returning to the PPMA Total Show 2016 (27–29 September), the PPMA Group Industry Awards will once again celebrate the best that British manufacturing has to offer following a record number of entries submitted. Taking place at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham on the first night of the exhibition, the industry will come together to recognise innovation and celebrate notable manufacturing successes from the past 12 months.

The awards bring together influential leaders from across the packaging, processing and machinery industries, with over 400 guests expected to attend the gala dinner hosted by comedian and Mock the Week regular Andy Parsons and Sky Sports presenter Hayley McQueen.

55 entries were submitted for the awards in 2015, and this year’s number has exceeded that, with hundreds of businesses entering across the award’s 13 categories. The finalists were announced last week and will now do battle to win prestigious titles ranging from Most Innovative Processing or Packaging Machine to Exporter of the Year.

Recognising the popularity of the awards, an overwhelming number of high-quality entries were recorded for the Most Innovative Processing or Packaging Machine category resulting in a record-number of 13 shortlisted entries. The quantity and strength of entrants demonstrate that innovation is still being championed across the industry in a sector that is continuing to strive despite recent reports.

Other awards announced on the night include Customer Service, Most Innovative Automation System, Most Innovative Vision Project and Partnership of the Year. In addition to the shortlisted finalists, the PPMA Group will also announce the Outstanding Achievement and returning for its second year, Apprentice of the Year award winners on the night.

Speaking about the PPMA Group Industry Awards, Grant Jamieson, Chairman, PPMA Group of Associations, says: “The sheer volume of entries we’ve received this year only goes to highlight the strength of the British processing, packaging and manufacturing industries. It is clear to see the judging panel will have a tough task of identifying 2016’s winners and we wish all of the finalists the best of luck on the night.”
