We are thrilled to announce we have received notification that we have been shortlisted for not just one, but two categories at this years ‘Made in the North West’ Awards!

Our first success is in the category for ‘Manufacturing Apprenticeship/Training Scheme Award’, which is such a special category to be recognised in due to our on-going passion in supporting the next generation and future face of engineering. The second, which we are extremely proud of, is our very own Amee Flynn who has been shortlisted in the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ category.

CEO, John Coughlan, stated “We are extremely pleased to be shortlisted for these two categories as it evidences the investment we make in not just putting skills into the plant, but the passing on of these skills to the next generation. This doesn’t only support the requirements of our business, but also supports the skills which will be necessary to support the UK’s challenges of the future.

It’s extremely gratifying to see Amee, a Mechanical Design Apprentice, be shortlisted from TSP Engineering. In the past we have had a history of craft apprentices receiving awards, but this shows the skill of the people we have throughout the whole business and the successful future which lies ahead”.

Now in their ninth year, the prestigious ‘Made in the North West’ Awards acknowledge and celebrate the great manufactures in our region. The manufacturing industry is crucial to the North West economy and it’s important the teams behind their achievements and success are recognised and celebrated.

Amee Flynn, who is in her final year of her apprenticeship said “As cheesy as it is, I feel lucky to be able to say I work in a sector and business I love, so to receive this level of recognition in addition to this so early in my career is breath taking. I work amongst some of the best, most experienced, engineers in the region, so I guess I owe a lot to them for taking me under their wing and supporting me in my growth and journey”.

As always, the competition will be tough, but we have everything crossed that both Amee and TSP Engineering will take the crown at the awards ceremony later this year at the black-tie event at The Lowry in Manchester on the 28th July. In all honesty, we feel like we’ve already won, being recognised as finalists in a time which has been so negative, uncertain, and challenging for everyone. Thank you to Amee and the wider team for all your hard work, let’s keep striving to be the best!
