Wrights Plastics GPX were honoured to be named ‘Manufacturing Champion 2015’ at the prestigious Express & Star Business Awards 2015. It is our second such award in 12 months.
The category, sponsored by UTC Aerospace System, aimed to recognise innovative, organisation and investment in people and skills. Wrights GPX have seen massive recent growth. They generated a 40% increase in turnover and increased staff levels last year as well as expanding their business through successful work for clients such as Marks & Spencer, Tesco and Selfridges. They have also invested over €500,000 in the cutting edge technology and plant to support their expansion aims.
Managing Director Mike Wright said “We are honoured to have received the award against very strong competition. It is recognition of the hard work of the whole team, not just in the past 12 months but over many years.”
In November 2014 we were also named ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ at the Birmingham Post Business Awards last year.
