Leeds-based wide-format printer Northern Flags and sister company FaberExposize UK have landed three nominations for the Made in Yorkshire Awards - Manufacturer of the Year (under £25m), Manufacturing Training Scheme and Apprentice of the Year.
Thanks to an agile pivot strategy, company training and development schemes and the launch of a new, popular green initiative Action Now, Northern Flags has been able to thrive during the pandemic.
Northern Flags and FaberExposize UK MD Iain Clasper-Cotte said: “We have shed endless blood, sweat and tears over the last 12 months, so to receive these three nominations is real recognition for our team. Thanks to them, not only have we navigated the choppy waters of 2020, but we’re also growing rapidly and looking forward to unveiling some exciting new plans for the future.
“As a business, we’ve long known that one of our key strengths is the energy and ambition of our employees. Added to the learning and development we’ve undergone in the last year means we’re now in a position to pass that knowledge on to our clients and suppliers. We’re really pushing this with our Action Now environmental initiative, which is so important for the print and manufacturing industries.”
The Made in Yorkshire Awards recognises diversity and excellence in Yorkshire and the Humber, and those companies in the region manufacturing world class products and distributing them throughout the country and across the world.
The awards ceremony takes place at the Leeds Hilton on 29 July.
