Lestercast have been shortlisted for Midlands Family Business Awards 2014

Posted 22nd August 2014 By Lestercast Limited

Lestercast have been shortlisted as finalists for two categories for the 2014 Midlands Family Business Awards 2014 which we’re delighted about.

A few months ago, we sat down, we – the marketing team, to put together an application for the Family Business Awards which are to take place towards the tail end of this year. Having recently enjoyed the process of nomination, finalist and winner for the Leicester Mercury Business Awards in March this year in the category of Excellence in Manufacturing we felt that we were a strong contender for this particular accolade also.

Lestercast is a long-standing, family-run investment casting firm with a strong work ethos and a strong family influence behind all of its decisions. Having been notified about these awards by mutual supporter of the awards who has worked for us on various occasions we felt this was certainly a path to take.

We entered three categories – the Family Business of the Year, the Manufacturing Excellence and the Employer of the year awards so to be shortlisted for two of the three we are very happy with the outcome.

The category of Manufacturing Excellence is sponsored by Barclays and the category of Employer of the year is sponsored by Becketts Farm.

We have been invited to a set of two interviews, one for each category which are to take place next month as the next stage of the judging process. The winner and two highly commended in each category will be announced at the black tie awards ceremony in November at Nottingham Trent University.

We look forward to sharing more information on our Blog in due course.
