Made in Yorkshire member and specialist precision engineering subcontractor CBE+ have been shortlisted for 4 awards with Make UK. The firm could potentially win recognition for SME of the Year, Manufacturing Heroes, Developing Future Talent and Business Apprentice of the Year.
CBE+ who specialise in precision engineering, electroless nickel plating, gear cutting and metal testing have received nominations for awards with trade association Make UK. The awards ceremony, which will take place online, is spread across five different ceremonies for the regions involved. CBE+ will be part of the awards ceremony on 8th October at 4 pm - 6:30 pm for the Midlands and East.
Made in Yorkshire sat down with Katie Andrews, Marketing Manager at CBE+, who has been nominated for Business Apprentice of the Year – Final year. Asking her how it feels to receive this kind of recognition, Katie said:
“I feel grateful and honoured. It’s great to be recognised by the company and the judges. I think I have been shortlisted for the work on social media that I have produced, increasing CBE+ LinkedIn followers by 1300%.”
CBE+ is headline sponsor at Get up to Speed with STEM which impacts more than 4,000 children annually looking to get into the engineering sector. In addition, they have internal an apprenticeships scheme to help close the noticeable skills gap in the industry and build a future generation of leaders. Therefore, it is no surprise that they have been nominated for the Developing Future Talent award. On top of this, they also hold regular factory tours for children to give them a first-hand experience of the workplace and help encourage them to get into engineering in the future.
In addition to this, the company centralised its ERP system during the COVID-19 pandemic making them more efficient and capable of working to tighter deadlines. This has made CBE+ really stand out for the awards as SME of the year and Manufacturing Heroes, as they also produced ventilator parts during the lockdown period.
