Manufacturer of the year

Conservatory Outlet has been awarded Manufacturer of the Year 2018 at the Wakefield Manufacturing Awards.

The company was presented its trophy at a high-profile ceremony that recognises and celebrates excellence in manufacturing across Wakefield and the wider district.

Conservatory Outlet was selected for the award by judges for the way it works closely with its supply chain to achieve growth.

The judges were also impressed with the company’s efforts to embed its new vision and values across the business, and for its investment in training and workforce development.

Michael Giscombe, managing director at Conservatory Outlet, said: “We work incredibly hard to ensure we invest in training and the wellbeing of our people, and this is a fantastic recognition of the hard work and dedication of our entire team here in Wakefield who deliver an excellent level of service. It just shows you don’t need to be a big exporter or ultra-high-tech to be innovative in manufacturing.”
