Faulkner Moulds Toolmaker Wins Manufacturing Award for ‘Outstanding Innovation, Initiative and Efficiency’

Yorkshire Toolmaker, Faulkner Moulds, has won the prestigious 2022 Business for Calderdale ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ Award!

The awards celebrate local business achievements, shining a spotlight on businesses that have “gone above and beyond”. The whole team discovered they were the winners at a glitzy event on 13 October at The Venue in Halifax. Faulkner Moulds was also one of just 6 finalists for overall ‘Business of the Year’ award.

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

Apprentices Lewis and Jamie both live in Calderdale. 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”.

Duncan Faulkner, Managing Director, commented, “I am so proud of our team and all we have achieved together. We have embraced ‘world firsts’ in terms of technology and have pioneered new skill sets. We’re absolutely delighted to have won this award and are proud to be part of a thriving local economy with many varied industries and manufacturers in this area. Our goal is to be known as the UK’s number one choice, especially for multi-cavity and complex tooling”.

Caroline Faulkner, Director, added, “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.
