Celebrating core values

By Ben Brocklesby, director at Origin.

Being able to raise awareness of the Origin brand and champion UK manufacturing is really important to us.

One of the best ways to do that is through industry specific and UK-wide business awards. It reiterates our position as a leading British manufacturer and highlights how hard our staff work every day. This award recognition also reaffirms our partners’ confidence in our brand, service, and products, as it proves our quality on a national scale.

So far this year, Origin has been selected as a finalist in five awards. This is something we are very proud of and as awards season rolls around, the excitement is high within the office. We were most recently shortlisted in the B2B Business of the Year category at the Make UK Awards. We were thrilled by this, as you’d imagine, as this is such a prestigious industry award.

These nominations recognise the extraordinary effort that occurs behind the scenes both by the Origin workforce and our wider partner network across the country.

The continued growth and success we’ve experienced is in part a result of our team manufacturing top quality products. People throughout the Origin family work hard to ensure that our partners receive a gold standard service, all while ensuring that our lead times remain the best on the market.

The core values of our business have never been forgotten either, and the credit must go to Neil and Victoria for creating such a close-knit community at Origin. The family ethos they established has remained at Origin, even though we now have 290 employees, and the culture will remain vitally important to everyone in the business as we continue to grow.

These types of achievements motivate us hugely but we won’t be complacent. We are thrilled by the award nominations and of course we hope that we will win, but then we will get back to work. Continuing to innovate will ensure that we bring more trusted partners on board, as well as enhancing our credentials as a top employer and a leading organisation in our sector.

We are excited for the future of Origin and our partner network.
