Hardy Signs win big at the Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce Awards 2020.

We are delighted to announce that Hardy Signs have been chosen as the winners for the Manufacturer of the Year at Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce Awards 2020. The award celebrates a company that has excelled in Manufacturing over the past three years.  

Sponsored by Michelin, the judges were looking at all aspects associated with the business; including short and long term objectives, manufacturing processes, examples of innovation, efficiency, sustainability and more. The judges spoke with managing director, Nik Hardy, to understand more about the work that takes place at Hardy Place in Burton.

‘Staffordshire has long been recognised for its manufacturing history. The judges were looking at all aspects of the manufacturing process including product design, testing, development, production, marketing, sales and overall business performance. This may relate to a new product or product range, or an existing product that continues to lead the way within its field.”

Francois Levert, Michelin’s site manager in Stoke, said: ”The standard of applications was yet again very high. Finalists not only showed their flexibility in these difficult times to develop their customer offer and secure jobs, but also showing business growth and potential to create jobs moving forward. Sales and marketing, innovation in design and of course their responsibility to the environment and sustainability as well as being a responsible employer in the local community setting. The winner of the award tonight showed so many attributes above and beyond of what you would normally expect from this size of business and indeed those of twice this size.”

Nik Hardy, managing director of Hardy Signs, said: ”Over the last few years, our team has managed to secure projects with leading UK, European and North American brands. Within the past 24 months, we have completed our first major international project in Brussels and our first major digital signage project in California. We have a keen commitment to the environment, prioritising best practises in our manufacturing processes, in order to complete this vision. In recent years, we have taken significant steps to reduce waste, increase sustainability and maximise the efficiency of our manufacturing.

We would like to extend our congratulations to all finalists and winners of the night, including Klarius Group of Companies and Varley Hydraulics who were also finalists in our category!”

12 months ago we were awarded the ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at East Midlands Chamber of Commerce awards.
