Newton Aycliffe manufacturer PWS celebrated a double success after picking up two award in successive weeks.
The leading kitchen distributor and bespoke worksurface manufacturer won the Manufacturing Award at the Durham, South Tyneside and Sunderland heat of the North East Business Awards.
PWS beat off competition from Siemens to pick up the award at the Stadium of Light, only a week after winning Aycliffe Business Park’s Company of the Year award at the Make Your Mark event.
PWS head of manufacturing Jeremy Redshaw said: “It was a very proud moment when we were announced as the winner of the manufacturing award.
“We were shortlisted against some much larger companies and this achievement is testament to the great team we have within the business.
“The entry focused on investment, innovation and development. We hit the mark on all three counts.”
Aycliffe Business Park Community chair Kerina Clark said: “PWS has long been established on Aycliffe Business Park and evidence of the business growth can be seen in the growth of its base here.
“Known and respected throughout the area, PWS’ commitment and contribution to the local economy is highly valued. Alongside the continued growth of the business, PWS pride themselves on being good corporate citizens, engaging with the local community.”
