Technical Director Shaun Peel (pictured) said: “We’re over the moon to have won at both of these awards. We are so humbled to have even made it through to the shortlist or final but to win is thanks to our dedicated team at our site in Lancashire.”

“Over the last five years, our range has proven popular with clients and big brands in the UK, US, Mexico, Europe and Australia, and we’re proud to be supporting the inevitable transition into automation and industry 4.0, across the manufacturing and processing of foam components and springs, and are excited to see where our growth expands to next.”
