A successful Northumberland manufacturing business has been named Large Business of the Year.
Moulded Packaging Solutions, based in Blyth, picked up the accolade at this year’s Northumberland Business Awards.
Established in 2008, the business, which creates a wide variety of plastic containers, jars and tubs, enjoys a developing and growing export market, with its products used in America, Australia and throughout Europe.
The company took home the Small Business of the Year award in 2009, and was praised by the judges for its dynamic and switched-on attitude.
Managing director Ian McLeod said: “It is absolutely brilliant to win this award. We won the small business award in 2009 so it’s fantastic to come back and take home the large business award. We have invested everything back into the local area.
“We are continuing to invest in people and in the area, and we will continue to invest.”
The category, sponsored by NBSL, also saw B&B Attachments, Arch and BSS LED shortlisted.
