There are just two weeks left to enter the second annual Made in Lincolnshire awards as entries close on April 14.
Hosted by Streets Chartered Accountants, NatWest and Business Lincolnshire, the awards focus on the county’s excellence in manufacturing for what has already been created as well as innovative ideas that are about to come to light.
The ‘To Be Made in Lincolnshire Award’ will allow businesses to showcase their products which have passed the concept stage, just entered the market or that are still in their infancy.
More than £3.4 million is estimated to be contributed to the local economy from Greater Lincolnshire’s manufacturing sector every year.
James Pinchbeck, marketing partner for Streets Chartered Accountants, said: “We are receiving a good level of entries, especially from the smaller and often less well known names engaged in manufacturing from across the Greater Lincolnshire area, which includes north and north east Lincolnshire.
“With only two weeks to go we would like to encourage more entries from those businesses that produce something that is recognised as world class by the markets and customers they serve.
“We are also keen to receive entries for the category ‘To Be Made in Lincolnshire’.
“This particular award seeks to recognise a business or individual that has developed a new product that is just entering the market place, post concept stage, or that is still in its infancy in terms of business sales.
“Entries can be made directly by the business itself or by third party nomination.
“The entry process is simple via a brief online entry form which can be completed by visiting www.madeinlincolnshire.co.”
