Thornton-based Addison Precision won big at the Lancashire Business View Red Rose awards

Scooping the prestigious Made in Lancashire title

Thornton-based Addison Precision won big at the Lancashire Business View Red Rose awards, scooping the prestigious Made in Lancashire title. This event sees Lancashire business, commerce and industry come together and are celebrated. It provides the best possible platforms to promote success, and to encourage trading within the county.

Since launching the awards in 2011 the Red Rose Awards have steadily grown and become the centrepiece attraction for the business community in the county with the sell-out ceremony taking place at the magnificent Winter Gardens Blackpool. The Awards play out in front of an audience of more than 1,000 business professionals and this year saw the awards celebrate its 13th year.

Addison Precision, whose headquarters are located on the Hillhouse Business Park Enterprise Zone, was recognised for its contribution across a range of sectors, including aerospace, defence and infrastructure to medical implants.

Chief Executive Marcus Addison said: “It is with great pleasure and tremendous pride for Addison Precision to be recognised as the winner of the Made in Lancashire Award at the Red Rose finals ceremony this year. It is brilliant for an engineering manufacturer such as ourselves to achieve this positive recognition. More than 100 companies reached the finals out of over 2,000 entrants to the competition and for Addison to be crowned as the overall winner of the ‘Made in Lancashire’ Award is just absolutely fantastic. We do some tremendous things here at Addison for a diverse blue chip client base, right across the UK, and we are really pleased to have been recognised by the Red Rose judges. Our regular partners are many but include the manufacturing of aero-engine components for Rolls Royce, being a design and manufacturing partner for BAe Systems along with supporting the country’s gas network for National Grid. We also manufacture human implantable devices for the medical industry. The judges commented that our passion and enthusiastic approach from our talented engineers really shone through, as did our commitment to excellence in customer service and sustainability and the credit truly goes across the whole workforce. They really deserve this.”

Mark Verdon, Managing Director of Addison Precision said: “This award recognises the efforts and commitments of all the exceptionally talented engineers and people within our company. The award helps not only raise our business profile and that of British engineering in the north but of the Hillhouse Business Park Enterprise Zone in Thornton-Cleveleys, where we are based. It is especially important right now as we continue to recruit and attract both new engineers and apprentices to the company. We need a steady stream of talented engineers to satisfy our expanding company, so it’s important in the first instance that these people know who we are, what we can offer and where we are based.”

The Addison group are on an upward trajectory with purposeful strategies in place to achieve growth whilst also delivering on their ambitious commitment to their net-zero targets.
