Leading trailer and commercial vehicle body manufacturer, Cartwright Group was the winner of the Manufacturer of the Year (over £25m) category in last week’s Made in the UK Awards national finals held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
The judges were impressed by the breadth of products and services offered by the Cartwright Group and the company’s commitment to ongoing investment.
The Made in the UK Awards recognise excellence from across the country celebrating all that is great about British manufacturing.
The win follows the company’s recent success in the regional final Made in the North West Awards in which Cartwright had a double award win picking up both the Manufacturer of the Year category as well as the Manufacturing Apprenticeship and Training Award.
Now in its 67th year the Cartwright Group, which operates under the tagline Better. Built in Britain, is a shining example of British manufacturing. With its 39-acre head office site in Altrincham and multiple sites across the UK, the company is constantly pushing the boundaries to seek new ways to improve its production processes and further diversifying the business offering.
It is a strategy which has paid dividends playing an instrumental role in the company’s rapid growth in recent years and reinforcing its position at the forefront of the marketplace through its ‘one stop shop’ solution.
Mark Cartwright, Group Managing Director, said: “We are incredibly proud of our heritage and I am delighted that our achievements as a British manufacturer have been recognised on the national stage.
“It is a tremendous accolade for the business and testament to the dedication and hard work of our employees. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who has made this possible and look forward to continued success for many years to come.”
