Barnsley-based clay and plastic pipe manufacturer Naylor Drainage has been named a British manufacturing champion after scooping two national business awards.
Naylor walked away with gold twice at the EEF Future Manufacturing Awards held in London last week. The company won the Outstanding Export Award, which recognises manufacturers that have developed and implemented a successful new export strategy.
The winning streak didn’t end there. The company was also crowned Winner of Winners on the night - an award presented to the most outstanding and inspiring company out of all the national winners.
Naylor Drainage was selected by a panel of judges drawn from business leaders, industry experts and academics, and was up against tough competition from a range of dynamic businesses, small and large from across the UK.
The judges were particularly won over by the company’s development of highly-engineered technical drainage products and solutions, including Denlok jacking pipes and Thermachem chemical drainage.
Edward Naylor, chief executive at Naylor Drainage, said: “There are so many fantastic manufacturers in the UK. To not only win the Outstanding Export Award, but also be named Winner of Winners, is a massive compliment. We have worked really hard to develop innovative products and to enter new markets, and this is a very welcome recognition of the efforts of our entire team; we are all delighted.”
