A supplier of filters and housings for critical engineering processes has seen off the challenge of firms from a range of industries to win a coveted manufacturing award.
Amazon Filters has been named manufacturer of the year among companies with turnovers of more than £25 million (€30 million) at the Made in the South East Awards.
The judging panel, which included experts in export finance and corporate growth, “were also impressed with the many indirect ways Amazon Filters is supporting the COVID-19 effort. For example, their filters are used in the inks that supply the printers used to mark sell-by dates on foods and medicines”.
Neil Pizzey, Amazon Filters managing director, said: “Being named Manufacturer of the Year is testament to the dedication and hard work of our team in what has been the most extraordinary 12 months for economies around the world.
“The award shows clear third-party recognition of the success of our dedicated investment in ‘quick and able’ manufacturing capacity at our production centre in Camberley.”
Philip Cunliffe, panel chair and regional business editor of awards organiser Insider Media, added: "This has been a really difficult year for the manufacturing sector in the South East but it has risen to the challenge amazingly well.
“The resilience, creativity, fortitude and innovation of the sector shone through in many of the entry submissions we received.”
As well as its award win, Amazon Filters was shortlisted in the Export Award category.
