The awards are one of Mansfield’s highest profile awards and winning one says a lot about the quality of your organisation and the strength of your team.

Our awards attract a range of entries from across all sectors from both small and larger organisations.

But the winners all have one thing in common – they are truly excellent at what they do and have proved this by winning a Chad Award.

We want to help you raise the profile of your organisation and enhance its reputation by promoting the great work you are doing, while at the same time providing you with a platform to celebrate your success.

The excellence in manufacturing award will be presented to the company which demonstrates a modern, efficient and innovative approach to manufacturing.

It includes a commitment to the excellence and development of its products, a track record for training and passing on skills to future generations and the desire to promote the region as a centre for manufacturing excellence.

The new business of the year category is open to businesses which have started operating since June 1, 2014.

Businesses are welcome to enter more than one category if they feel they are applicable.

However, please put forward separate entries for each category.
