Recognition for MIM member at Express & Star Awards

Uncategorized Made in the Midlands member, Petford Group has been recognised for its sustained growth over recent years with a leading award.

The company is the recipient of this year’s SME Business of the Year award at the Express & Star Business Awards.

The award rounds off what has been a busy year for the Dudley-based group, which is also the current holder of the Made in the Midlands Manufacturing Achievement Award.

The toolmaker and injection moulding specialist has embarked on a major expansion over the past few years - the latest phase of which was capped off last year by a £1.8m investment in its new moulding facility.

But the firm is not finished with its investment and plans further outlay as its looks to reach its goal of growing turnover to £20m over the next three years.

Joining Made in the Midlands in 2014, the company has always been a strong advocate for the MIM network, citing it as helping to engineer new orders as well as improving its connections with other suppliers.

The group has eagerly embraced the MIM ethos and is one of the most actively engaged members in the network.

One of the latest examples of this has seen it become an early adopter of MIM’s new Inclusivity campaign.

Jason Pitt, CEO, Made in the Midlands, said: “I would like to offer my congratulations to Petford Group for their success in the Express & Star Business Awards. It is always rewarding to see our members recognised for their achievements.”

The recognition comes as the group gears up for its appearance at the annual Made in the Midlands Exhibition, which takes place at the Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on June 21.

The group will be exhibiting on Stand 211 where it will be explaining more about its services and why it is proving to be so successful.

With hundreds of Made in the Midlands members exhibiting and thousands of ticket registrations, this year’s event promises to be the best expo to date.

As well as being a fitting showcase for the great work being carried out by manufacturers across the region, the expo will also provide one of the largest networking opportunities of its kind this year.

By attending you will be guaranteed exposure to one of the largest manufacturing networking opportunities to be found anywhere.
