Awards shortlist

Liniar has been shortlisted for the Manufacturer of the Year award in Made in the Midlands Awards.

“Being considered for awards always brings a sense of pride that our 500+ workforce are delighted to share,” group MD Martin Thurley said. “In these unprecedented times, it’s even more important than usual to be able to share these nuggets of much-needed good news to all those who work within our business, while most of them are furloughed and waiting to return.”

Entries include information about every aspect of a manufacturing facility, from its financial performance to manufacturing efficiencies and quality, from infrastructure and investment in people to its impact on the local environment.

“We’re all very proud of the positive culture we have here at Liniar,” Martin said. “It’s really come to the fore of late in the proactive way the team have dealt with the temporary closure of our site, as well as keeping all our communication channels open. We’ve also had a raft of willing volunteers to help with our initiative to produce protective face visors for key workers to help get through this crisis – everyone really does want to help where they can.”
