Composites UK has released the nomination forms for its 2020 Industry Awards.

The annual awards celebrate the achievements of the UK composites industry, in categories covering company efforts and successes on an individual level.

The categories include innovation in composite design, manufacture and materials, as well as recognising start-up businesses, health and safety practices, sustainability projects, and investment in employees. Employees and trainee/apprentices will also be showcased, Composites UK said.

While entry into the awards is free of charge, the shortlisted two companies/individuals in each category will be expected to attend the awards dinner, which takes place on Wednesday 4 November 2020 in Solihull, UK.

‘We are very excited to see what entries we receive for the 2020 awards, said Claire Whysall, communications manager said. ‘The composites industry has been involved in some amazing projects over the last 12 months, and have stepped up throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. We'll also be renaming our Outstanding Contribution Award to the Trevor Starr Outstanding Contribution Award. Trevor was one of the founders of Composites UK in 1989 and sadly passed away earlier this year.’

The deadline for entry is 5pm on 31 July 2020.
