Fighting off strong competition, QA Weld Tech won the 2012 Manufacturer of the Year title for the Teesside region at the prestigious NE Business Awards, held at Teesside University in March.
Impressing the judges in areas of quality, innovation, investment in people and equipment, sales performance, and markets served, the award recognises the achievements of the 60 strong workforce over the last 12 months.
Charles Tighe, MD of QA Weld Tech said “The whole Company is tremendously proud to have won this Award. We have gone through a period of unprecedented growth in the last three years, investing in both personnel and equipment to make sure that we are ready to meet the challenges the engineering industry faces in the forthcoming years. We are delighted that these efforts have been recognised.”
The Company now goes into the Regional Final to compete against the best businesses from Tyneside, Durham and Wearside.
