Faulkner Moulds is Finalist for Local Manufacturing Award Recognising ‘Clear Vision’ and ‘Innovation’

Yorkshire Toolmaker, Faulkner Moulds, is one of just three manufacturers in the Calderdale area who have been nominated and shortlisted for the 2022 Business for Calderdale ‘Manufacturing Award’.

The awards celebrate local business achievements, shining a spotlight on businesses that have “gone above and beyond”.

The panel of Judges met in July. The Judges commented that they were, “extremely pleased with both the number and quality of applications received… it was a tough decision to narrow them down to just three in each category”, adding that, “we have been astounded with examples of organisations being creative, innovative and enterprising”.

Faulkner Moulds moved into the Calderdale area in 2012 and, after implementing a Business Plan focussing on technology, skills and marketing, the business has flourished.

Apprentices Lewis and Jamie (pictured above) both live in Calderdale and attended nearby Brooksbank school. Lewis said, “I’ve been told finding a job you enjoy waking up to is difficult. However, at Faulkner Moulds that couldn’t be any further from the truth. It’s great to get this local recognition for the effort we put in to make our tools the best they can be”.

Caroline Faulkner, Director, commented, “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this award and are proud to be part of a thriving local economy with many varied industries and manufacturers in this area. The team truly deserve this recognition as they have been with us every step of the way, from our roots as a one-man band, through to national recognition as 3-times UK ‘Toolmaker of the Year’ and establishing ourselves as a pioneer in UK toolmaking technology and techniques”.

Celebrating the contribution of manufacturers to the Calderdale economy, the award recognises SMEs that have delivered consistent growth and demonstrate innovative products and processes, outstanding initiative, and efficiency. When choosing the shortlist and ultimate winner, the Judges are looking for strong growth, innovation, leadership, clear vision and a fully engaged workforce.

The team at Faulkner Moulds will discover if they are the winners at a prestigious Awards evening on Thursday 13 October at The Venue in Halifax.
