Deadline for MHEA Excellence Awards extended

The MHEA has extended the awards deadline for its Excellence Awards to midnight on 25 August.

Now in their second year, the MHEA Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate the talent, creativity and achievements of companies and individuals in the UK Bulk Materials Handling industry. Companies can enter one or more of the four award categories:

Apprentice of the Year
The Apprentice of the Year Award seeks to acknowledge and celebrate an apprentice’s exceptional occupational progress and their contribution to their workplace during their apprenticeship. To enter, applicants must be based in the UK and have completed or be in an apprenticeship scheme within the last 12 months.

Project of the Year
An award acknowledging a project which has achieved significant success through effective management and delivery approaches. Awards are considered for projects demonstrating excellence, regardless of size in the bulk materials handling industry.

Supplier of the Year
An award recognising exemplary service, performance and customer commitment by a supplier in the bulk materials handling industry.

Innovation Award
An award for the introduction of new technology or improved solution in the bulk materials handling industry.

Winners will be announced at the awards dinner on 18 October 2017 at Eastwood Hall, Nottingham, the end of the first day of the BULKEX conference.

Nominations must be made by members of the MHEA, however they may nominate non- members for an award.

Michael Kaye, Chairman of the MHEA, said: “Support for the awards has been very strong and the awards dinner has almost sold out. Last year’s winners have definitely benefitted from the kudos of pan-industry recognition and we are looking forward to finding the deserving candidates for 2017.”
