Ring, the vehicle lighting, auto electric and car accessories supplier to the aftermarket, is celebrating after it was named winner of the Automotive category at the Made in Yorkshire Awards, which took place at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on Thursday 20 April.
Accepting the award, which was presented to the automotive company that the judges deemed to have had the biggest impact on the region over the last twelve-months, means that Ring will now go on to compete in the national Made in UK Awards, which take place in Liverpool in June.
Marketing Manager, Henry Bisson took to the stage to collect the award and comments: “Winning an award like this is real recognition for the time, effort and commitment that everyone at Ring has invested over the last 12-months.
“We place huge emphasis on quality and this is reflected in everything we do; from the development and testing of our products to customer service and beyond. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome and look forward to the national event in June.”
The Automotive Award was one of 10 categories, comprising 37 shortlisted companies. Other awards included Export Award, Food & Drink Award and Manufacturer of the Year – split into two awards, one for businesses with a turnover of less than £25million, one for businesses with a turnover of over £25million.
Arranged and hosted by Insider Media Ltd, the awards celebrate the achievements of companies throughout the Yorkshire region, before the winners from each category come together at the national Made in UK Awards to compete against other successful finalists from the North East, North West, Midlands, South West, South East and Northern Ireland.
