Kitchen manufacturer Moores has announced that it has been shortlisted for the Made in Yorkshire Manufacturer of the Year (over £25m) award. The company, which was founded in West Yorkshire 70 years ago, says that it has grown its business through 'hard work and innovation while always remaining connected to our 70 years of heritage in Wetherby'.
Steve Parkin, CEO of Moores, pictured, said: “We are honoured to be considered for this prestigious award. We employ more than 500 people and during the pandemic our forward-thinking adjustments to get people safely back to work were documented by the BBC. This, coupled with our sustainability initiatives, innovative designs launching this autumn, and ambition to continue to make Moores a fantastic place to work, means we are delighted to have been recognised for this award. At Moores, we have always been proud of our Yorkshire roots and are pleased to be included in an event that celebrates the brilliant businesses that are thriving in this part of the country.”
The winners are set to be revealed at an awards dinner taking place on 29th July at the Hilton Leeds City Centre. The event will celebrate Yorkshire and the Humber based companies for the products that they manufacture locally and trade across the globe.
