Have you entered the MHEA excellence awards?

Free to enter, the awards are open to everyone involved in bulk and materials handling – whether that’s across the ports, power, mining, steel or cement industries.

The MHEA Excellence Awards are designed to celebrate the talent and creativity of MHEA members and the outstanding contribution of member companies.

This year’s award winners will be announced at the gala dinner on Wednesday 5 October at The Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.  The special event takes place on the first evening of the annual BULKEX16 exhibition and conference.  Book tickets for places now.

There are five award categories:

  • Innovation Award – for the introduction of new technology or an improved solution in the bulk materials handling industry
  • Apprentice of the Year – this acknowledges and celebrates an apprentice’s exceptional occupational progress and their contribution to the workplace during their apprenticeship.  To enter, applicants must be based in the UK and have completed/be in an apprenticeship scheme within the last 12 months
  • Project of the Year – acknowledging a project which has achieved significant success through effective management and delivery.  Awards are considered for projects demonstrating excellence, regardless of size
  • Supplier of the Year – recognising exemplary service, performance and customer commitment by a supplier in the bulk materials handling industry
  • Harold Wright Award – this outstanding achievement award will be presented to a company or individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the bulk materials handling industry.

It’s easy to enter the awards.  Simply submit an online entry form for each award at www.mhea.co.uk/bulkex-2016/ no later than Friday 2 September.  It is possible to enter more than one category.
