Lancashire’s Manufacturing and Engineering Business Awards up for grabs at Red Rose Awards 2016!

Businesses across Lancashire are being called on to enter the national award-winning Red Rose Awards, which will crown the county’s best firms across 26 categories including manufacturing and engineering.

The 2015 event, which was organised by Lancashire Business View magazine, attracted more than 1,000 of the county’s top business people for the celebration at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.

Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View, said: “This event celebrates Lancashire business, provides the best possible platforms to promote success, and encourages trade in the county.

“We are giving businesses the opportunity to shout about the great things they do and achieve and we hope they’ll grasp that opportunity with both hands by entering. We encourage those in the manufacturing and engineering          sectors to enter the industry specific and general categories that are relevant to their business.

“We know the business community love participating in the awards – if you experience the Red Rose Awards either by entering, judging, sponsoring or attending on the night, we ask that you encourage your clients, suppliers and associates to enter now!
