The law firm Bevan Brittan LLP is sponsoring the ‘large manufacturer’ category at the Insider Media ‘Made in the Midlands’ Awards 2019.

The award is for the company that has made an outstanding contribution to the manufacturing sector in the Midlands, with a turnover of over £25 million and/or employing in excess of 250 people. The judges are looking for companies that can clearly demonstrate excellence, sales growth, increased exports and regional economic impact.

Monica Macheng, a partner in Bevan Brittan’s corporate practice who is based in Birmingham, said:

“We are delighted to support the Made in the Midlands Awards in recognising the region’s top manufacturers. The Midlands has a long history of manufacturing in automotive, textiles, brewing and ceramics, and continues to support many traditional industries and strong national and global brands.

“The region also continues to attract new and innovative businesses that are now thriving in the region. Increasingly, the Midlands is taking advantage of the opportunities that Industry 4.0 will bring to the sector, with greater automation, data exchange, cloud and cognitive computing.”
