The Bradford Means Business Awards 2021 aim to celebrate the successes and achievements of companies throughout the Bradford district.

Nominations are open across ten categories, and the Winner of Winners Award will be decided on the night.

Judges will be looking for excellence in their field, ability to succeed, growth and best practice when it comes to awarding the Manufacturer of the Year for 2021.

Sponsored by Thorite, this award recognises that manufacturing creates economic growth and is the engine that drives the district’s economy.

Manufacturers contribute to the vibrancy of our communities through good business practices, innovative processes and productivity enhancements.

This award celebrates the successes of manufacturers in the district and in 2019 it was local company Cardinal that triumphed in this category.

The company, which installs retail and commercial interiors, had just celebrated 30 years of business.

MD Tim Considine said he felt “fantastic” upon collecting his award.

He said: “It’s great news. We’re a family business, we’re one big family. I think a lot of it is down to technological changes. We’ve got to keep evolving.”

The firm had invested heavily in new machinery, training and procedures to ensure the business thrived.

It had also expanded to encompass more building and construction-related works with experienced construction professionals employed to help deliver projects onsite.
