UK-based tray sealing and pot filling manufacturer, Packaging Automation Ltd has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2017 E3 Business Awards, which will be held at the Macron Stadium in Bolton on Thursday 13th July 2017.

The company, which is the leading manufacturer and exporter of specialist food packaging machinery was selected from amongst hundreds of nominees to become one of the finalists for the prestigious Manufacturing Business of the Year; Employer of the year; and Business of the year category.

Speaking on behalf of the company, Commercial Director, Sam Ashton said:  “Being selected as a finalist in three categories of the E3 awards is a fantastic endorsement of the hard work that is being done by the brilliant team of employees at Packaging Automation.  We have all been on an incredible journey during the past 3½ years that has seen growth and changes in our people as well as the business. Everyone has worked to overcome challenges set by our customers and each other to improve our business, products and overall performance.”

“Each year, it becomes more of an achievement to win a finalist’s place,” said Mubarak Chati, managing director of 1 Events Media, which hosts the E3 Awards. “Every year since we’ve started, we’ve seen an increase in nominations and a corresponding increase in quality. This year, across all seventeen award categories, we’ve seen an increase of around 18% on last year.”

“We’ve had nominations from throughout the North West and we’ve seen real strength in all areas. One of the big surprises has been the number of entries from new businesses, digital, creative and media sectors, women in business and voluntary organisations.

“It’s always been a key purpose of the Awards to celebrate the achievement of all parts of the community – not just the mainstream – women, charities and social enterprises coming forward in such numbers is very gratifying indeed.”

“Given the number and the high standard of entries, we certainly gave the Nominations Panel a difficult job. They have risen to the challenge, though, and their final selections represent the very best of the whole North West region. For Packaging Automation to be named as a finalist for 2017 is an achievement of which it should be very proud.”
