We have been involved in the Plastics Industry Awards as sponsors, finalists and winners since 2003. In that time, the Awards have continually grown in popularity and prestige in the industry. The calibre of the winners is a benchmark of the innovation in UK plastics and I am proud of the role that Engel UK and the Engel Moulders Group have played in that wider success. Always a most enjoyable evening where business and pleasure can truly mix, this year the entertainment added that extra element to turn the whole show up to 11.
Having won the Processor of The Year Category at the Inaugural Plastic Industry Awards and been successful in subsequent years I can testify that the PIA’s have been a great showcase for the Plastic Industry. The way they have evolved to meet the changes needs of the industry shows they understand their audience. The themed evenings, The Great Gatsby and Masked Ball of the last two years has raised the evening to the next level. We are proud to be involved in the event as the sponsor of the Training Award and feel this is the ideal platform to link our organisation with. The fact it has gone from strength to strength over the years is a testimony to the work the organisers have put into it.
I have been involved in the Plastics Industry Awards since 2000 and have seen the development of these tremendous awards grow in stature over the years. I am involved on the judging panel and the level of entrants and the categories introduced for the Awards demonstrates the pace and technological change that has taken place in the industry over the years. The entrants for the awards highlight the great work that is being achieved year on year within the Plastics industry and what better way to promote these achievements is for an Awards ceremony. The evening provides the Industry with a spectacular occasion to demonstrate the importance of the Plastic Industry in the UK.
